Register free of charge, free hotel room, free travel! ESR, ESHI and ESOR have decided to support young radiologists, oncologists and nuclear medicine physicians in their specialty training by fully subsidising this unique ESOR course and enabling participants to learn more about hybrid medical imaging.
The International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) and the European Society of Radiology (ESR) have concluded a practical arrangement on cooperation in the area of diagnostic imaging, with a special focus on hybrid imaging.
In 2017, the European Society of Radiology (ESR) will further focus its educational and promotional efforts on the hot topic of hybrid imaging. An extended plan of action is already in place, in close cooperation with the European Society for Hybrid Medical Imaging (ESHI).
Three-minute SPECT/CT is sufficient for the assessment of bone metastasis as add-on to planar bone scintigraphy: prospective head-to-head comparison to 11-min SPECT/CT.
To investigate potential bone metastases, UF-SPECT/CT can be conducted as add-on to WB-BS to notably reduce the SPECT acquisition time without compromising diagnostic confidence.
Adding a scan of the entire head to a routine whole-body PET/MRI protocol reveals a significant number of incidental findings in the brain in asymptomatic cancer patients, according to a study presented on Wednesday at RSNA 2016.
