Advanced Features of Quantification 2021

July 1-2, 2021

An application has been made to the UEMS EACCME for CME accreditation of this event.


Reliable quantification in nuclear medicine is a corner stone of our field. However, with the ever-increasing capabilities of modern SPECT, SPECT/CT and PET/CT system and their role in diagnostic and therapy, the knowledge of this foundation and the potential limitations of all these methods tends to disappear in a black box. Thus, this ESMIT Advanced Course on Quantification in SPECT and PET (Oncology) will provide the necessary resources to critically investigate recent and future technology “break-throughs” and let the attendee gain confidence in quantification methods in the aforementioned fields to maintain the foundation layer of our field in daily practice.

This course addresses the general principles of nuclear medicine, image reconstruction basics, and techniques for image registration and segmentation in SPECT and PET. Furthermore, quantitative parameters, assessment of therapy response, and motion compensation are covered. All methodological considerations are accompanied with hands-on sessions.


Understand the

  • technical principles,
  • their potential limitations,
  • and the impact on the reading process

of SPECT and PET quantification.


We would encourage physicists, technically oriented technologists and nuclear medicine MDs with an already good background on nuclear imaging methods to apply for this course.
