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
