WASHINGTON, Oct. 1 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- AdvaMed 2007, the inaugural MedTech conference, kicks off today bringing together industry leaders, policy makers, service providers, investors and leading CEOs of medical technology companies from around the world. The conference runs today, Oct. 1 through Oct. 3.

With more than 45 industry sponsors, 26 U.S. and international supporting partner organizations, and 10 media partners, this first-of-its kind event will welcome an opening-day crowd of more than 900 attendees from 35 states and 25 countries.

One of the first sessions of the day is a special program in recognition of breast cancer awareness month coordinated by Siemens Medical Solutions. With physician experts, cancer survivors and patient advocates, the panel will offer dynamic presentations and a question and answer session addressing breast cancer as a disease state, highlighting the patient perspective, value of technology, clinical implications and opportunities as well as future technologies.
