About the Workshop
This co-provided workshop, presented by the Society of Nuclear Medicine and Molecular Imaging's (SNMMI) PET Center of Excellence and the International Society for Magnetic Resonance in Medicine (ISMRM), will focus on both the technical aspects of PET/MRI as well as the clinical utility of PET/MRI. The workshop will feature a mixture of invited scientific presentations, proffered papers, a poster session, small group discussion, and a keynote lecture. A young investigator award will be presented to students and early stage post-doctoral or physicians that will be selected from the oral paper presentations.
- Explain why attenuation correction is a challenge in PET/MRI and the various approaches being developed to solve this problem
- Explain how MR can be used to aid in PET motion correction
- Discuss prior and ongoing efforts to quantify the arterial input function from PET/MR images
- Discuss how PET/MRI is currently used clinically and the near-term clinical applications.
Approximately 10 CE Credits will be offered for physicians, physicists, pharmacists, and technologists. Full details to be posted October 1, 2019.
Technologists: Credit earned at the PET/MRI Workshop can count towards the NMTCB’s PET specialty certification requirements.
