Webinar Complete |Detecting Pulmonary Fibrosis Earlier with New Dual Energy X-Ray Technology
Join us as Karim S. Karim, Founder and Chief Technology Officer of KA Imaging, and Dr. Patrik Rogalla of the University Health Network (UHN) explain how dual energy x-ray technology can help with the early detection of pulmonary fibrosis. Tune in to learn how imaging is typically used for diagnosis and management of PF, how this new technology is better than traditional x-rays, how to speed up diagnosis and treatment, and where this technology is available.
Dr. Patrik Rogalla
Dr. Patrik Rogalla completed his medical studies as well as his radiology residency at the Free University of Berlin in Germany. After having completed a Clinical fellowship in gastro-intestinal imaging at the University of California UCSF in the United States, he returned to Germany, where he began working at the Charité University Hospital. There, he progressively held roles, which eventually led him to his appointment as Professor of Radiology. In July 2009, Dr. Rogalla was appointed as Full Professor of Radiology at the University of Toronto and held the position as Head of the Abdominal Imaging Division from July 2010 until December 2017. In February 2018, he was appointed as Head of the Cardiothoracic Imaging Division and Deputy Head of Innovation at JDMI. Furthermore, Dr. Rogalla is the Director of Computed Tomography at JDMI and served as the Site Director at the Princess Margaret Cancer Centre until June 2020.
Karim S. Karim
Karim (PhD, PEng, MBA) has developed novel X-ray imaging devices and systems since 1998. He has supported two start-ups (Ignis Innovation and Ultrascan) and founded two companies (ActivPixel and KA Imaging) in the past two decades. He has raised more than $15M in research grant funding, trained over 40 PhD and MASc students, has co-authored 250+ publications and 50+ patents. Some of the X-ray circuit technology he developed is now used in ultrasonic fingerprint sensors in mobile phones and tablets.
