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.
The ESHI invites you to complete this very interesting survey on Cloud-Based Tumour Characterization. It takes only 5 minutes.
There are lots of Hybrid Imaging modules on the ESR’s e-Learning platform ‘Education onDemand’
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 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.
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.
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.
Thomas Beyer, treasurer of ESHI, talks to AuntMinnie about the purpose and the future of the newly founded ESHI. Thomas Beyer is professor of physics of medical imaging and deputy head of the Center for Medical Physics and Biomedical Engineering at the Medical University of Vienna.
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.
