SNMMI Highlighting PET/MRI and Therapeutics in Two Unique Events

Posted on: 10.10.19 by Digirad

SNMMI PET/MRI and Therapeutics events preview

Therapeutics and PET/MRI are both areas of intense focus and innovation in nuclear medicine. The Society of Nuclear Medicine and Molecular Imaging (SNMMI) is actively working to help members stay ahead of trends by holding two innovative conferences later this month that showcase these two topics.

On October 25 – 27 in Las Vegas, attendees will take a deep dive into theranostics and learn the dynamics of adding a therapy practice to their services. Additionally, from October 26-28 in New York City, members will be able to participate in an innovative workshop dedicated to PET/MRI.

These events feature leaders in both fields and give members an unprecedented chance to explore these topics. Let’s take a look at each event in detail:

SNMMI Therapeutics Conference: Therapies, Theranostics & Building Your Radionuclide Clinical Practice

The SNMMI Therapeutics Conference will take place on October 25 – 27 in Las Vegas, Nevada. Conference attendees will explore the latest innovations in theranostics and learn how to establish a nuclear therapy program at their organization.

The event will feature luminaries in the field of theranostics and focus on practical ways to bring therapy into nuclear medicine.

Conference co-chair, Dr. Daniel A. Pryma, stated, “Therapeutic radiopharmaceutical use is growing in the US and is poised for dramatic expansion in the coming years. Even for those not currently administering these treatments, this conference will provide the information needed to start or expand the practice.”

On top of the informative content, attendees will receive 12 hours of continuing education credits. Hurry if you’re interested in attending because the event is nearing sell-out stats. Learn more and register here.

SNMMI PET/MRI Workshop

In addition to the conference focused on therapeutics, SNMMI will also be hosting a workshop focusing on PET/MRI. Offered in partnership with the International Society for Magnetic Resonance in Medicine (ISMRM), the workshop will explore both the technical aspects of PET/MRI as well as the clinical utility of PET/MRI.

Participants will join together in New York City from October 26-28 to experience a mixture of invited scientific presentations, a poster session, small group discussion, and a keynote lecture.

Sessions include topics related to attenuation correction, using MR to aid in PET motion correction, how to quantify the arterial input function from PET/MR images, and more.

The workshop is a chance to learn more about this growing modality, see how it’s being used clinically, and better understand the challenges of using it at your practice.

In addition to the information and sessions, physicians, physicists, pharmacists, and technologists will earn 10 CE Credits for attending the workshop. Learn more and register online here.

It’s essential to stay on top of trends and learn new ways that nuclear medicine can benefit patients. With these opportunities to learn about therapeutics and PET/MRI, SNMMI members should have a busy month.
