Symposium Description

The field of Molecular Imaging / Nuclear Medicine is undergoing a revolution due to technological, pharmacological, social and professional advances. The goal of this symposium is to provide an update of factors and trends currently affecting the practice of nuclear medicine. Topics include:

  • Application of nickel-mediated fluorination technology for human PET imagining research
  • Exendin-4 loaded nanoparticles for multimodality imaging of pancreatic islet
  • Challenges of MR-based attenuation correction in simultaneous MR/PET imaging
  • Application of late stage [18F] Fluorination towards neuroimaging

This symposium is to foster opportunities for professional development and provide an open forum for the free-exchange of ideas with professional peers.

Who Should Attend?

This is designed for technologists, physicians and students in the field of Molecular Imaging / Nuclear Medicine and other healthcare professionals who wish to enhance their knowledge of current and future trends. All participants with basic and/or advanced knowledge of nuclear medicine will benefit from this program.
