VOC measurements

One of the research teams at ULg is leading the field of volatile organic compounds (VOC) measurements in all kinds of biological matrices. The laboratory is equipped with state-of-the-art Separation Science tools and offers all possible sample collection and introduction devices (TD, SPME, mSBSE, DHS, SHS, SPE…), each being automated. The analysis of VOCs in patient […]

At Belgian level, CHU de Liège coordinates the European multicenter registry which is in charge to evaluate current practices in terms of diagnosis and management of cardiac toxicity of breast cancer treatments (COT registry: EACVI/HFA Cardiac Oncology Toxicity Registry in Breast Cancer: EURObservational Research Program of the European Society of Cardiology). In addition, our team evaluates […]

Valvular Heart Disease

Our team has been working for 10 years on valvular heart disease and highlighted several factors of poor clinical outcome through biomarker assay  (BNP, ST2, etc), the use of advanced echocardiographic techniques (study of myocardial deformation, ultrasound effort, etc) and the assessment of functional capacity. CHU de Liège has created the ‘Heart Valve Clinic’, regrouping a multidisciplinary team […]

Abdominal aortic aneurysms

A study carried out by the teams at CHU de Liège revealed that recourse to the PET-CT medical imaging method was efficient in detecting aneurysms that are likely to rupture. They are currently exploring if a correlation between PET-CT images and the presence of specific molecules in the samples of aortic wall taken from the areas of high metabolic […]


GIGA researchers have developed the 18F-FB-mini-PEG-E[c(RGDyK)](2), 18F-FPRGD2, a radiopharmaceutical targeting the integrin αvβ3, a transmembrane heterodimeric receptor regulating cell interaction with the extracellular matrix (ECM). The interaction site of integrin αvβ3 with ECM is a tripeptide sequence arginine-glycine-aspartic acid (RGD) present in a wide range of ECM molecules including fibronectin, fibrinogen, von Willebrand factor, thrombospondin, […]

Patient diagnosis, treatment & follow-up

Histological changes: development of specific MRI sequences to demonstrate histological changes associated with spinal cord injury, including degeneration of white matter tracts. These new quantitative imaging techniques allow to assess the degree of damage and the beneficial effects of spinal cord repair strategies. Measure axonal loss in patients with a corticospinal tract impairment, based on transcranial […]

Patient diagnosis, treatment & follow-up

The CHU de Liège has created a Science Alliance called MoVeRe bringing together scientists involved in the study and care of patients with Parkinson’s disease and other movement disorders. This group is specialized in: Diagnostic consultations of patients with cognitive impairment Neuropsychological characterization of cognitive difficulties Analysis of the sub-thalamic nucleus at rest and during specific […]

Patient diagnosis, treatment & follow-up

Discriminating prognostic classification based on clinical and biological analysis Novel magnetic resonance imaging sequences to predict the topography of tumor recurrence Revisiting the structural and functional anatomy of the Sylvian fissure (lateral sulcus) which includes the white matter pathways for surgery of the insula in case of glioblastoma Looking for clinical advice or support, or […]
