I. Roca-Bielsa (Barcelona):
Role of Nuclear Medicine

Educational objectives:

  1. To understand the need for different imaging modalities in paediatric benign and malignant bone diseases from a clinical point of view.
  2. To describe the radiological and nuclear medicine approach in paediatric bone diseases.
  3. To explain and document the consensus reached in the diagnostic imaging involved in each clinical situation.


This session is designed for those Nuclear Medicine specialists and residents wishing to learn about the different imaging modalities in paediatric bone diseases.
From a clinical point of view, needs and challenges for diagnostic imaging in pediatric bone diseases are pointed out with respect to correct staging and finding adequate therapeutic strategy.
The conference will be developed simultaneously by the 3 speakers, reviewing sequentially the most frequent indications in benign and malign paediatric bone diseases. In each clinical situation, the benefits, advantages and disadvantages of each imaging technique will be discussed, with special focus on indication, clinical impact, dosimetry and interpretation of the correlative images.
The aim of the lecture is to help the clinician and the imaging specialist in deciding the imaging modalities to apply in each clinical situation.
