InfoSNM highlights advances in computer, information sciences for molecular imaging

RESTON, Va. -- The explosive growth in the power of digital computers used for molecular imaging and nuclear medicine will be showcased at SNMs 54th Annual Meeting June 26 in the Washington Convention Center in Washington, D.C. SNM, the worlds largest society for molecular imaging and nuclear medicine, debuts its InfoSNM program, offering both educational programs on information science and technology and novel uses of computers in research and education as well as in the clinic.

"The use of computers and information scienceand how they are essential to clinical data processing, image data management, education and science for molecular imaging and nuclear medicinewill be featured at InfoSNM," said SNMs Scientific Program Chair Frederic H. Fahey. "More than 4,000 doctors, technologists, scientists and pharmacists from around the world will have the opportunity to participate with this extraordinary first-time program," he added.

"Computers are an essential part for molecular imaging research and nuclear medicine procedures," said Fahey, who anticipates that the popularity of this program will increase in years to come. InfoSNM will offer computer demonstrations by vendors, computer classrooms used for commercial presentations and general computer education, and computer-based presentations on the use of information science and technology that has been developed in laboratories, said Fahey. "I am encouraged by the tremendous amount of interest and support that InfoSNM has received. Computers and information science touch so many aspects of what molecular imaging and nuclear medicine professionals do every day," he added.

From June 35, novel researchfor the clinic or research labwill be presented in six computer presentation sessions. Times have been designated for presenters to describe their work, give demonstrations and answer questions. Topics include

  • the development of a PET/CT database of patient information
