If online registration is not possible, please contact us: esmit@eanm.org

Registration to the Technologist Track: Since the organization of the Tech Track is different than from the other 4 tracks (as described in the tab “Technologists”), please send an e-mail to esmit@eanm.org, if you are interested in attending either the English or the Italian track. The registration fee for the Tech Track amounts to € 100.- since it will be held for 1,5 days and without the option of attending one of the other tracks before or after.

Cardiovascular Track

The Cardiovascular track (Cardio) will offer the roadshow to get all of your questions on multimodality imaging in coronary heart disease (perfusion and function) and cardiovascular infection & inflammation answered by experience professionals in a high interactive forum.

The format of the Cardiovascular track has been created to provide during a 1.5-day program a comprehensive overview of basic, theoretical and practical concepts needed for a deeper and thoughtful understanding of the use of molecular imaging in cardiovascular disease. The program is organized in refresher sessions and clinical sessions focused on multimodality imaging in coronary heart disease and cardiovascular infection & inflammation. During the refresher session basic concept on cross sectional anatomy, radiopharmaceutical and imaging acquisition protocols with a special session on imaging quantitation will be provided. Each of them will be accompanied with interactive case example of normal anatomy and variants as well as basic examples of multimodality imaging, including hybrid imaging examples. The training on specific clinical setting of coronary heart disease will include two consecutive sessions focused on coronary artery disease diagnosis and patients’ management, respectively and on cardiovascular infection & inflammation. The organization of clinical session is based on short focused lectures providing a practical approach for the choice of the best imaging procedure to answer specific clinician questions step-wise in the clinical decision making process and the basis for guideline understanding. Subsequently, by interactive case studies and hands-on sessions where clinical examples are shown, attendees will be challenged in the application of the instructed concepts. During hands-on sessions participants will experience reading and reporting of specific imaging tests with particular emphasis on their role in the therapeutic disease management, preparing themselves for the clinical discussion with the referring clinicians. With the cardiovascular multidisciplinary team discussion that will represents the forum for the discussion of the main findings of the hands-on sessions, we aim to simulate the daily team-work setting and provide attendees the skills needed, such as communication, interactivity and education skills.
