C. M. Grana

J. P. Pouget

G. Tosi

N. Varmenot

Speakers: Jean-Pierre Pouget
Nicolas Varmenot
Moderators: Chiara M. Grana
  Giovanni Tosi
Target audience: Physicists, Physicians, Technologists
 

 

Content

Radiobiology is a branch of biology devoted to the study of biological effects of ionizing radiation on living organisms. We can speak about radiobiology in different clinical and research setting of Nuclear Medicine: dosimetry, preclinical and translational science, oncology and radiation protection.
By this webinar we will try to better understand the importance of this topic in different fields in order to reach one target: we need always more efficient and safer radiopharmaceuticals for personalized cancer diagnosis and treatment.

 

Learning Objectives

The aim of this course will be to understand the importance of radiobiology in cancer diagnosis and therapy.

23.04.2021 - Diuretic renography in children - EANM & SNMMI procedural guidelines

April 23, 2021 – 13:30 (CET)

 
Speakers: Zvi Bar-Server
Ana Isabel Santos
Moderators: Lars Kurch
  Catia Olianti
Target audience: This course addresses everyone who is interested in the performance of diuretic renography in childrens. However, it fits best for physicians in training with basic / intermediate knowledge and clincial experience of 1-3 years.
 

 

Content

Based on the latest guidelines published we will review main recommendations and specificities of how to perform diuretic renography scans in children. Attention will be drawn to different clinical contexts, avaiable radiopharmaceuticals, patient preparation, different acquisition protocols as well as tricks and problems of data processing. A further important topic will be the interpretation of the scans as well as performing an adequate reporting and a clinical audit. Cases and case discussions will be used to transfer the gained knowledge into clinical practice. Pariticipants are kindly invited to share their working experience and to spark off discussions if necessary.

 

Learning Objectives

The main learning objectives are to understand referrals, good practices for the performance of the exam, main pitfalls and how to improve the clinical impact of the exam.

07.05.2021 - Quantification in PET: status quo, future direction and related myths

May 7, 2021 – 13:30 (CET)

 
Speakers: Ian Armstrong
Wolfgang Weber
Moderator: Stephan Nekolla
Target audience: Physicists, Physicians, Technologists
 

 

Content

Although quantification in PET imaging is one of is cornerstones and key selling points, so to speak, there is quite a variability in this implementation in our field. This webinar discusses the technical requirements, the physiological assumptions and the future directions from both the physicist’s as well as the clinician’s perspective. Emphasis will be given on an integration into efficient workflows and on the harmonization of quantification in hybrid imaging .

21.05.2021 - Malignant versus benign bone tumors : a 10-point guide to survival

May 21, 2021 – 13:30 (CET)

 
Speaker: David Morland
Target audience: Nuclear medicine residents (Level 2 – Level 3) and physicians
 

Content

The distinction between benign and malignant bone tumors presents a twofold challenge in nuclear medicine: not ignoring an aggressive lesion and delaying the initiation of treatment, but also knowing when to stop unnecessary or even invasive investigations in benign lesions. In this webinar, we will review the 10 most important characteristics of bone lesions to be taken into account in the analysis: age, pain, location, lytic or sclerotic phenotype, margins, evolutivity, periosteal reaction, soft tissue extension, joint extension, distribution. The presentation will combine theoretical points with practical examples.

 

Learning Objectives

The aim of this course is to learn how to distinguish benign from malignant bone tumors.

28.05.2021 - Hot topics in nuclear medicine data processing: radiomics and artificial intelligence

May 28, 2021 – 13:30 (CET)

 
Speakers: Chiara M. Grana
Dimitris Visvikis
Moderator: Stephan Nekolla
Target audience: Physicists, Physicians, Technologists
 

 

Content

The evolution of machine learning approaches with the introduction of deep learning techniques, has led to an exponential increase in the use of Artificial Intelligence (AI) in a variety of application areas, including the healthcare field. Within this context, AI has been introduced at different steps of medical imaging, covering the simulation of imaging devices, image formation including tomographic reconstruction and image related corrections to image processing for the subsequent exploitation of reconstructed images (image segmentation, harmonisation, radiomics analysis).
Starting from the request coming for the clinician with some examples of unmet needs, the webinar will proceed with latest advances in the field of NM image processing and some potential clinical endpoints.

 

Learning Objectives

The aim of this course will be to learn some possible answer to clinical unmet needs by radiomics and artificial intelligence.

11.06.2021 - Molecular imaging in Parkinson's Disease

June 11, 2021 – 13:30 (CET)

 
Speaker: Elsmarieke van de Giessen
Moderator: Diego Cecchin
Target audience: Nuclear medicine physicians (in training), neuroradiologists, neurologists
 

 

Content

This live webinar on molecular imaging in Parkinson’s disease will offer a comprehensive overview of the theoretical background and practical evidence-based use of molecular imaging methods in Parkinson’s disease. It will primarily focus on clinically applied imaging methods of the dopaminergic system and how these relate to disease stages and symptoms. Besides, it will also shortly touch on imaging in atypical parkinsonisms. After the theoretical background several clinical cases will be discussed.

 

Learning Objectives

Learn more about the clinical presentation and neuropathology of Parkinson’s disease; Understand when to use which imaging method in parkinsonian syndromes; Learn how to acquire and interpret dopaminergic imaging (in particular dopamine transporter imaging).
