Raman Spectroscopy & Prostate Cancer: a clinical perspective | Dre Dominique Trudel
Mon, 28 Sep 2020

Raman spectroscopy is an optical tissue characterization technique that, similarly to the phenotypical evaluation of tissues by pathologists, gives a global overview of the molecular content of the tissue. Throughout the years, my team has been involved in the development of Raman spectroscopy methods to improve the care of men with prostate cancer. In this talk, I will discuss the knowledge gaps we identified and how we used Raman spectroscopy to answer those key clinical questions. I will also address perspectives, describing other optical techniques complementary to Raman spectroscopy, and I will discuss the prerequisites to ensure clinical implementation of optical tools.

Speaker: Dre Dominique Trudel, M.D., PH. D., FRCPC

Target Audience: Pathologists, Residents, Medical Students, Scientists

CanMEDS Roles: Medical Expert, Scholar

At the end of the meeting participants will be able to:

  • Give a brief description of Raman spectroscopy
  • Enumerate two possible clinical areas of application of Raman spectroscopy
  • Compare Raman spectroscopy to non-linear microscopy and CARS.

This event is an Accredited Group Learning Activity (Section 1) as defined by the Maintenance of Certification Program of the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada and approved by the Canadian Association of Pathologists. You may claim a maximum of 1.0 hour (credits are automatically calculated).
