SNM experts focus on advances in molecular imaging for cancer, addiction, Alzheimer's, heart disease

Leading medical investigators will present recent developments in the diagnosis of cancer and heart and brain diseases during the Society of Nuclear Medicine's Mid-Winter Educational Symposium Feb. 1112 at Wyndham Buttes in Tempe, Ariz.

Noted physicians, scientists and technologists will present the latest news about using nuclear medicine and molecular imaging for the diagnosis, management and treatment of diseases to several hundred nuclear medicine physicians, radiologists, cardiologists, oncologists, technologists, pharmacists, medical physicists and other health care professionals. SNM is the largest scientific organization dedicated to nuclear medicine and molecular imaging, with more than 16,000 members. This year's topics include new molecular imaging agents for oncology, new developments in Alzheimer's disease and addiction, an overview of congestive heart failure and nuclear imaging, imaging atherosclerosis and stem cells, radiation safety, potential future clinical tracers, an introduction to cell and molecular biology, small animal imaging instrumentation and the evolving role of a nuclear medicine technologist.

"The society offers an exciting two-day program in Tempe exploring the development of novel probes in molecular imaging, monitoring treatment response with positron emission tomography, radiotracer imaging in congestive heart failure, advanced image processing and clinical nuclear medicine technology," said SNM President Peter S. Conti, M.D., Ph.D., professor of radiology, clinical pharmacy and biomedical engineering at the University of Southern California, Los Angeles. "In addition, the evolving role of nuclear medicine technologists will be examined," added SNM Technologist Section (SNMTS) President Valerie R. Cronin, CNMT, FSNMTS, director of imaging services at the Catholic Health System of Western New York in Buffalo, N.Y.
