Professor Iain Lyburn, Medical Director and research lead at Cobalt Health, speaks to delegates at Cobalt’s inaugural annual Dementia Conference held in conjunction with Siemens Healthcare.

Medical charity Cobalt held its inaugural annual Dementia Conference in conjunction with Siemens Healthcare, attracting over 100 healthcare professionals including radiologists, neurologists, psychiatrists, and nursing staff. “Dementia is now being recognised for what it is – a sizeable concern that places a signifi­cant drain on resources, stated Professor Iain Lyburn, Medical Director and research lead at Cobalt Health. “While there continues to be no cure, heightening awareness is essential to early diagnosis.”

The annual Dementia Conference follows Cobalt’s recent unveiling of a new Biograph mCT Flow EdgeTM PET/CT system from Siemens Healthcare, installed at Cobalt Imaging Centre in Cheltenham. Anna Cartwright, UK Molecular Imaging Product Specialist at Siemens Healthcare said, “With the evolution of our PET/CT technology paving the way for enhanced dementia diagnosis through the elimination of stop-and-go imaging, Siemens is proud to have been able to support this inaugural event.”
