Imaging for Neuromuscular Disorders in Clinical Trials, Upcoming Webinar Hosted by Xtalks

Share Article

In this free webinar, the featured speaker will discuss the challenges and opportunities in conducting neuromuscular clinical trials. The speaker will also dicuss changes to muscle tissue that are common to most neuromuscular disorders. Attendees will learn about different imaging modalities, and how to choose the right one for a given trial.

Regardless of the etiology of the muscle disease, the measurable changes that can be seen through imaging have a great deal of commonality — there is often inflammation, fatty infiltration, muscle atrophy and fibrosis.

Neuromuscular disorders affect the neuromuscular system and affect the nerves that control the muscles, the muscles themselves and the interface between the nerves and the muscles. These disorders include amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), muscular dystrophy, myositis, spinal muscular atrophy, amongst others. Many of these diseases are genetic, such as duchenne muscular dystrophy, while others, such as sporadic inclusion body myositis (sIBM) are idiopathic autoimmune inflammatory myopathies.

There are currently no cures for any of these diseases. Regardless of the etiology of the muscle disease, the measurable changes that can be seen through imaging have a great deal of commonality — there is often inflammation, fatty infiltration, muscle atrophy and fibrosis. Many of these characteristics can be quantified through imaging, and this webinar will discuss how to apply different imaging techniques to make these measurements in the context of a clinical trial.

Join Jonathan Riek, PhD, VP, Musculoskeletal & Metabolic Imaging, Philips BioTel Research in a live webinar on Tuesday, December 7, 2021 at 1pm EST to learn about the importance of choosing the right imaging modality for clinical trials of neuromuscular disorders.
