Evolving Hybrid Imaging into Clinical Practice
esmofir/ESHI satellite symposium 2017 – EMIM

On behalf of the European Society of Molecular and Functional Imaging in Radiology – ESMOFIR and the European Society for Hybrid Medical Imaging – ESHI be warmly invited to attend EMIM 2017 and the Satellite Symposium dedicated “Evolving hybrid imaging into clinical practice” subsequent to the EMIM 2017.

Course Description
This course is aimed at radiologists, nuclear medicine physicians and researchers in medical imaging who want to update their knowledge on state-of-the-art hybrid medical imaging. The programme includes basics on hybrid imaging techniques, both on PET-CT and PET-MRI, expanding on the technical background and tracers, but will also give a broad overview on dedicated clinical applications such as hybrid imaging in oncology, cardiovascular imaging or brain imaging. The expert faculty comprises nuclear medicine physicians and radiologists who will provide a series of lectures describing indications and advances in hybrid imaging. Concluding, this course will provide a broad overview of the latest developments in hybrid imaging, as well as a good networking opportunity.

Learning Objectives
• to learn about imaging techniques, protocols and artefacts in hybrid imaging
• to understand the indications, limitations and added value of hybrid imaging in various entities
• to learn about systematic image evaluation of hybrid imaging
• to get a basic knowledge of tracers and radiopharmaceuticals for hybrid imaging
