First ESOR/ESHI Course on hybrid imaging in oncology proved to be a sensational success

On September 1–2 the first ESOR Asklepios Course on Hybrid Imaging in Oncology took place in Vienna (Austria) organised in cooperation with ESHI. Fully booked with 100 participants from 32 countries, the course confirmed the organisers’ idea that there is a strong demand for education and training that focuses on the combination of radiology and nuclear medicine.

The whole is greater than the sum of its parts

‘The combination of nuclear medicine and modern imaging procedures such as CT and MRI is becoming increasingly important in the diagnosis, treatment planning and aftercare of cancerous diseases,’ explains Professor Katrine Åhlström Riklund, who presides over the newly established European Society for Hybrid Medical Imaging, ESHI.

Live Online Session: Trends in PET/CT

ESHI President Prof. Katrine Riklund will be appearing in a live online session hosted by GE Healthcare, on Wednesday, June 1st at 5pm CET. The session will focus on state-of-the art clinical trends & best practices in PET imaging.

When Imaging Goes Hybrid

Hybrid imaging was much in the news during recent major annual radiology events, such as RSNA and ECR. MedicalExpo talked with ESHI President Dr. Katrine Åhlström Riklund about new trends in this promising technology.

The Significance of Hybrid Imaging today

Hybrid imaging with PET/CT and PET/MR is becoming increasingly crucial in the routine staging of oncologic disease, treatment planning, early treatment evaluation, and follow up. With ECR 2016 President, Professor Katrine Riklund, being licensed in both radiology and nuclear medicine, it is easy to guess, that one of the key aspects of the ECR 2016 programme will be hybrid imaging.

Radiology Congress: Hybrid Imaging Opens Door to Faster and More Accurate Tumour Diagnosis

Close cooperation between radiology and nuclear medicine on hybrid imaging has helped bring about more efficient, more accurate and faster diagnosis for oncological, neurological and cardiovascular diseases. Access to high-tech combination equipment shown to be sufficient in Austria. At the European Congress of Radiology will the latest advances in hybrid imaging be discussed, as wells as new applications for the technology.
