Overview



Medical Imaging and Diagnostics (including image guided therapies) is a highly innovative life science segment, which differs significantly from other apparently related areas. The innovation is not limited to products but also includes services, and the cycle of innovation (apart from production and distribution) comprises a large variety of professions, e.g. physicians, engineers, physicists, administrators, and health insurance staff. Compared to other industrial branches these products and services are usually developed faster and cheaper; hence, they are quicker to market. That means rapid results -- be it success or failure.
Most innovation is conceived and initially commissioned in close cooperation between users and engineers / scientists. It is a tough road from an initial idea or concept to a product or service however. For scientist used to working in a regulated environment it is a very difficult step to take their own idea or prototype to the next level -- make a product out of it, create a company, think in terms of usability and marketability, and convince others of their idea and conceptual proposals.
This talk will give an insight into the challenges and excitements of being a medical imaging entrepreneur. The goal is to introduce the gist of a new lecture, which shall teach students how to evaluate market potentials, how to analyze decision making and customer handling, and how to organize sales channels. The basics about being an entrepreneur – which qualifications are needed, which organization, management, finance, strategic issues are suitable in the medical imaging market – are covered in the proposed lecture. An assignment will give students a hands-on experience how to provide a realistic and sellable business concept for their own ideas or for a medical imaging challenge provided by the lecturer.

Abstract: Medical Imaging and Diagnostics (including image guided therapies) is a highly innovative life science segment, which differs significantly from other apparently related areas.

Compared to other industrial branches these products and services are usually developed faster and cheaper; hence, they are quicker to market. That means rapid results -- be it success or failure. Most innovation is conceived and initially commissioned in close cooperation between users and engineers / scientists. It is a tough road from an initial idea or concept to a product or service however. For scientist used to working in a regulated environment it is a very difficult step to take their own idea or prototype to the next level -- make a product out of it, create a company, think in terms of usability and marketability, and convince others of their idea and conceptual proposals. This lecture will give an insight into the challenges and excitements of being a medical imaging entrepreneur. The goal is to teach students how to evaluate market potentials, how to analyze decision making and customer handling, and how to organize sales channels. The basics about being an entrepreneur – which qualifications are needed, which organization, management, finance, strategic issues are suitable in the medical imaging market – are covered in the proposed lecture. Two supervised assignments will give students a hands-on experience how to provide a realistic and sellable business concept for their own ideas or for a medical imaging challenge provided by the lecturer.
