Prof. Clemens Löwik

Principal Investigator MUSIS project

Leiden University Medical Center (LUMC)

“The MUSIS project represents a highly multi-disciplinary research effort that will bring near-infrared optical imaging into the clinic for image guided cancer surgery. It is a unique collaboration in the Netherlands between leading scientists, technical universities, companies and surgeons, and has the potential to revolutionize surgical oncology by providing surgeons with a real-time fluorescence-based tumor imaging technique to guide surgery for radical resection of tumor tissue and identification of sentinel nodes. By allowing highly tailored surgical treatment, it could significantly improve cancer survival rates.”

Professor Clemens Löwik is Head of Experimental Molecular Imaging and President of the  European Society for Molecular Imaging.
