More than 4,000 physicians, technologists, scientists and pharmacists will attend this meeting, the world's largest event for molecular imaging and nuclear medicine professionals. The educational and scientific program at the 53rd Annual Meeting is tailored to provide attendees with the most current and important information available in the field. SNM and SNMTS present about 100 continuing education courses focusing on PET/CT, cardiovascular nuclear medicine, brain imaging, pediatrics, oncology and therapy, thyroid cancer and radiation safety.
"Medical practitioners, technologists, scientists, physicists and pharmacists from around the world come to this premier scientific and educational event to discover just how far molecular imaging and nuclear medicine have pushed our understanding of human disease," said SNM President Peter S. Conti, professor of radiology, clinical pharmacy and biomedical engineering at the University of Southern California, Los Angeles, and director of the PET Imaging Science Center at USC's Keck School of Medicine. "From Alzheimer's to schizophrenia, from breast cancer to thyroid cancer, molecular imaging and nuclear medicine research have a proven record of leading to improvements in the diagnosis and treatment of life-threatening diseases that affect millions each year," added Conti, speaking on behalf of the society, which has more than 16,000 physician, technologist and scientist members in 78 countries.
"These are exciting times for all molecular imaging/nuclear medicine professionals, and SNM's Annual Meeting is the place to find the research, education, products and services essential to delivering the highest-quality patient care,"
