About the Conference

Chitkara School of Health Sciences, Chitkara University has been organizing the Advanced Diagnostic Techniques (ADT) Conference every year, since its inception in 2012. This Conference encourages young and innovative minds pursuing careers in science and technology by providing a suitable platform to present their research work and enhance their scientific acumen through interactions with eminent scientists and field experts. This year again, we proudly invite applications for the 12th edition of the International ADT Conference.

The theme of the 12th International ADT Conference is “Innovation and Integration: The Latest Trends in Diagnostics”, which aims to bring together leading academic scientists, researchers, scholars and students to exchange and share their experiences and research results on various aspects of Advances and Innovations in Diagnostics. The conference aims to bring together both national and international researchers, health practitioners, educators, and students to deliver papers and spark debates about recent trends and breakthroughs in the field of diagnostics, and will include a variety of presentations, discussions and keynote addresses.

In the year 2002, Chitkara Educational Trust established its Punjab campus 30 kilometres from Chandigarh, on the Chandigarh–Patiala National Highway. In the year 2010 Chitkara University was established by the Punjab State Legislature under “The Chitkara University Act”. Chitkara University, the best university in Punjab is a government-recognized university with the right to confer degrees as per the Sections 2(f) and 22(1) of the UGC Act, 1956. The University offers multi-disciplinary programs, all of which are designed to be industry- relevant. As a result of this student-centric approach, Chitkara University is renowned as one of the best private universities in the North India region. From business management programs to programs in nursing and health sciences; and from computer science, electronics and mechanical engineering programs, to hotel management and architecture—Chitkara University, Punjab is a veritable cornucopia of educational services.

The University has at the centre of its philosophical core the commitment to excellence in education. It is the strong academic heritage of the University, and such firmness on matters of principles that has seen it grow from strength to strength in such a short span of time. Being ranked as an A+ University by NAAC isn’t something that the Chitkara University team arrived in one day, one month or one year. It is testimony of the vision and guidance of the leadership and years of incessant hard work, devotion, and commitment of the entire team. Our recent success is a reflection of the standards that are being followed as a part of academic delivery in our university. Chitkara University has also bagged the 2nd rank in the prestigious ATAL ranking of institutions in innovation achievement (ARIIA) released by Ministry of Education, Government of India. This milestone is an outcome of our university’s relentless focus on fostering innovation and encouraging students to solve real world problems. But beyond an individual accomplishment, this accreditation reaffirms our position among the forerunners in the bigger change that is envisaged for the education system of our country.

Established in 2011, Chitkara School of Health Sciences is exclusively dedicated to the education of health care professionals. We envision training and developing health care professionals who can create a difference in the quality of life of all those who require healthcare. Our course curriculum is a blend of theory, practical and clinical exposure. Our esteemed faculty and our strong collaborations with industry leaders are the pillars of our successful journey through these 10 years.

    The complexity of the different disease mechanisms and underlying symptoms of the patient population presents massive challenges in developing the early diagnosis tool and effective treatment. Machine learning (ML), an area of artificial intelligence (AI), enables researchers, physicians, and patients to solve some of these issues. The approaches in machine-learning-based disease diagnosis (MLBDD) are slowly gaining popularity. It includes the use of algorithm, disease types, data type, application, and evaluation metrics.


    The workshop would focus on:

    • Precision nutrition and current trends of AI in nutrition.
    • Planning precision nutrition in Diabetes
    • Nutritional Diagnosis using ML: Development and Deployment of Models


    ML learns from the data using various algorithms and is a self-improving process in terms of performance as adjusting during the learning process. ML has been successfully applied to practically every domain such as robotics, education, travel to health care. In the healthcare domain, the ML approaches are mainly used for the purpose of disease diagnosis.

    Target Audience: Professionals from industry, faculty members, clinicians, research scholars, and UG/PG students from the field of nutrition and dietetics, public health, nursing and machine learning.

    Radiology, centres on the utilisation of imaging modalities to diagnose and treat diseases. It extends beyond mere disease detection, to encompass treatment guidance and ongoing disease management. Expertise in diagnostic modalities such as Computed Tomography (CT), Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI), Positron Emission Tomography (PET), Ultrasound and X-rays guide immediate clinical interventions, treatment monitoring, and chronicle a visual narrative of a patient’s health. From the discovery of X-rays to the subsequent integration of artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML), radiology is continually evolving.


    This workshop will be targeting audience from radiology background and will provide insights into Machine learning in radiology modalities. This hands-on workshop

    • Aims to exemplify from the analysis of observations or data to identify patterns and make informed future decisions based on these observations.
    • Provide the basics of machine learning for predicting or classifying data from pre-established outputs of different modalities.


    The future of radiology is guided by the integration of AI and ML. AI algorithms process and interpret data, performing tasks that emulate or even surpass human cognitive capabilities. ML, through exposure to labelled examples, is capable of extracting complex, high-level data, even from unlabelled datasets.

    Target Audience:

    Professionals from industry, faculty members, clinicians, research scholars, and UG/PG students from the field of radiology and imaging technology and AI.

    The polymerase chain reaction (PCR) has become one of the most important tools in molecular diagnostics, providing exquisite sensitivity and specificity for detection of nucleic acid targets. Real‐time monitoring of PCR has simplified and accelerated PCR laboratory procedures and has increased information obtained from specimens including routine quantification and differentiation of amplification products. Clinical diagnostic applications and uses of real‐time PCR are growing exponentially and real‐time PCR is rapidly replacing traditional PCR.


    The Handson workshop would include:

    • Isolation of DNA from blood and tissue
    • Step by step protocol for real time PCR (hands on)
    • Interpretation of CT value
    • Importance of real time PCR in Disease diagnosis


    Real‐time PCR is rapidly becoming the ‘‘gold standard’’ of nucleic acid sequence detection and quantification. The strengths of this technology are manifold: ease and speed of assay execution for large batches of samples; highest sensitivity (single targets can be detected in a 1012‐fold excess of unrelated nucleic acids); wide dynamic range (at least six orders of magnitude) of detection and quantification with a linear relation between log target to detection threshold cycle; highest specificity approaching 100% in well-designed assays with hybridization probes; and differentiation of detected nucleic acid sequences. These advantages ensure that real‐time PCR will continue to replace ever more diagnostic assays in the clinical laboratory.

    Target Audience:

    Professionals from industry, faculty members, clinicians, research scholars and UG/PG students from the field of medical laboratory sciences, life sciences, infection control etc.
