Physics (Interactive)
October 13, 2009, 08:00 – 09:30
Medical Physics Pitfalls, Problems & Solutions in Nuclear Medicine

Moderator: A. Britten (London)
Co-Moderator: T. Beyer (Zurich, CMI EXPERTS)

Cases presented by:
M. Bardies (Nantes):
Radionuclide Therapy
A. Britten (London):
Gamma Camera and General Nuclear Medicine Instrumentation and Methods
T. Beyer (Zurich, CMI EXPERTS):
PET/CT Instrumentation and Methods

Educational objectives:

To learn to identify pitfalls and problems affecting clinical nuclear medicine arising from technical matters in instrumentation, data processing, data analysis, and methods. To understand and to learn solutions to these problems and pitfalls.


There are a wide range of problems that can arise from issues in the use of instrumentation in clinical Nuclear Medicine. The clinician, technologist and physicist will benefit from understanding common problems that arise, and their solution.
The interactive session will give examples, and a chance to assess current knowledge. Examples will be followed by teaching on the point being illustrated.

Key Words:

Pitfalls, Problems, Methodology, Instrumentation, Radionuclide Therapy
