Intersecting Worlds: Dr. Xavier Serres Créixams Unveils the Mysteries of Ultrasound in Humans and Bats in an Enlightening Joint Event


“By Day and By Night” – A Collaboration between Vall d’Hebron University Hospital and Granollers Natural Science Museum Opens a Window to Medical and Natural Worlds with Dr. Xavier Serres i Créixams

Date: October 7, 2023

Location: Barcelona, Spain

Saturday, October 7th at 7 p.m. — Vall d’Hebron University Hospital and the Granollers Natural Science Museum are teaming up to host a remarkable event titled “By Day and By Night.” This interactive and enlightening activity invites participants of all ages to delve deep into the worlds of both human anatomy and nocturnal wildlife, guided by prominent professionals including Dr. Xavier Serres i Créixams, a distinguished Interventional Radiologist specializing in interventional ultrasound.

The Event:

The event begins with a live ultrasound demonstration, led by Dr. Xavier Serres i Créixams, allowing attendees to visualize the human body’s internal structures. Dr. Serres i Créixams brings his extensive experience and knowledge in the field of radiology and ultrasound-guided interventions to provide a unique insight into the human body, especially focusing on oncology applications.

Following this insightful demonstration, participants will embark on a guided tour of an exhibition at the Granollers Natural Science Museum. Attendees will then experience the immersive “bat cave,” where they will navigate with their eyes covered, relying solely on a specially-created ultrasound device by IDNEO to emulate the echolocation used by bats.

As night falls, microphones that pick up and record ultrasounds will enable participants to listen to the distinctive echolocation calls of different bat species residing in the courtyard of La Tela. Each bat species emits characteristic cries, generally imperceptible to the human ear, much like birdsong.

About Dr. Xavier Serres i Créixams:

Since 2003, Dr. Xavier Serres i Créixams has been a key figure at Vall d’Hebron Hospital, specializing in ultrasound-guided interventional procedures. His work primarily involves oncology patients, focusing on tissue sampling, biopsies, percutaneous radiofrequency treatments for hepatic and renal tumors, and treatments for benign thyroid nodules.

In addition to his medical practice, Dr. Serres i Créixams is deeply involved in academic activities, leading research projects in teaching and technological innovation, and training future professionals in ultrasound-guided interventions. His extensive research and innovations in biomedical devices and high-intensity focused ultrasound (FUSMED) position him as a leader in his field. He was also the principal investigator in the first human treatment of a hepatic tumor with histotripsy.

Implications and Insights:

This collaborative event promises to bridge the gap between science and the community, offering an unprecedented learning opportunity. The involvement of a seasoned professional like Dr. Xavier Serres i Créixams ensures participants will gain profound insights into both medical science and the fascinating world of bats.
