Learning objectives

  • to learn the principles of hybrid medical imaging
  • to learn the key clinical questions at different points in the patient’s journey
  • to understand the indications, limitations and comparative merits of each part in hybrid medical imaging in a wide range of oncologic conditions, including lymphoma, prostate cancer, gynaecological cancers, as well as brain tumors
  • to appreciate the complementary roles of structural and functional/molecular imaging in cancer management
  • to understand the importance of standardized protocols for hybrid imaging, and the clinical impact of structured reporting
  • to understand how information derived from imaging guides patient selection for treatment and supports individualised treatment planning

Evolving Hybrid Imaging into Clinical Practice

April 8, 2017, 09.00 – 17.00
Cologne, Germany

 

ESHI/ESMOFIR Satellite Symposium 2017

Subsequent to the European Molecular Imaging Meeting 2017, the ESHI in collaboration with ESMOFIR organises a Satellite Symposium dedicated “Evolving hybrid imaging into clinical practice” which will take place on Saturday, April 8, 2017.

You can find the program here.

To register, simply sign in during your EMIM registration. The workshop can be also booked separately!

Course Description
This course is aimed at radiologists, nuclear medicine physicians and researchers in medical imaging who want to update their knowledge on state-of-the-art hybrid medical imaging. The programme includes basics on hybrid imaging techniques, both on PET-CT and PET-MRI, expanding on the technical background and tracers, but will also give a broad overview on dedicated clinical applications such as hybrid imaging in oncology, cardiovascular imaging or brain imaging. The expert faculty comprises nuclear medicine physicians and radiologists who will provide a series of lectures describing indications and advances in hybrid imaging. Concluding, this course will provide a broad overview of the latest developments in hybrid imaging, as well as a good networking opportunity.
