Overview

Description
Nuclear Medicine has long been recognized as the imaging modality that can best assess function and the results of events that occur at a molecular level. The increased understanding of genomic and specific molecular mechanisms is now being more widely applied in clinical situations. The goal of this program is to discuss how nuclear molecular imaging can increase the effectiveness of many studies performed daily in both academic and community hospital imaging centers. Johns Hopkins faculty and visiting experts will present their experience with PET/CT and SPECT/CT and illustrate their results with studies from their patient populations. There will be ample time for questions and discussion following each presentation.

Who Should Attend
This program will be especially applicable to nuclear medicine physicians and radiologists who interpret nuclear medicine studies as well as those who treat patients with radioactive isotopes. The program will also be appropriate for technologists and others interested in using current state-or-the art nuclear medicine techniques.



Objectives
After attending this activity, the participant will demonstrate the ability to:
  1. Interpret nuclear medicine studies with greater confidence.
  2. Recognize new ways to obtain quantitative data.
  3. Discuss different nuclear medicine treatment options available to patients for variety of disease states, including emerging techniques.
