RESTON, VA – More than 5,000 physicians, technologists, scientists and exhibitors gathered for the Society of Nuclear Medicine and Molecular Imaging’s 65th Annual Meeting, held June 23-26 in Philadelphia.
The meeting had more than 850 scientific oral presentations and nearly 1,000 posters, as well as sessions on new tracers and applications, emerging technologies, updates on appropriate use criteria and coding and reimbursement, Mo-99 production and availability, and new “Nuts and Bolts” sessions in each track that covered a wide variety of subspecialty areas, providing practical information to apply in the clinic. The CT and MRI Case Reviews, always a draw, were presented in collaboration with the University of Pennsylvania.
With nuclear medicine playing a growing role in providing precision medicine, theranostics (combining diagnostic imaging and targeted radionuclide therapy) were an important focus throughout the meeting.
The Saturday evening Opening Ceremony provided an overview of the meeting and introduced China as the Highlight Country. Chinese drummers and dragons then led the way to the Welcome Reception and Exhibit Hall Opening. The Chinese society organized scientific and CE sessions throughout the meeting.
The Sunday plenary session featured the Henry N. Wagner, MD, Lecture on Quantitative Nuclear Imaging: Is SUV the Best
