Radiation Treatment Planning Track

This track is the result of a joint collaboration between the European Society for Radiotherapy and Oncology (ESTRO) and the Oncology Committee of the European Society of Nuclear Medicine (EANM).
The objective of this one-and-a-half days track is to teach and consolidate the knowledge of the attendees on the technical requirements and target definitions in radiotherapy, as well as the application of PET/CT for radiotherapy planning in different types of cancers like lung cancer, head and neck cancer, prostate cancer and brain tumours.
Learning will be imparted by the presentation of various video presentations specially designed to cover these topics. Following the theoretical lectures, participants will be able to put to practice what has been learnt on various clinical cases and during interactive case reading. Facilitators will be hand-to-hand with the participants to solve any doubts and incite discussion on relevant and interesting subjects.

Educational Objectives

  • To teach and consolidate the knowledge of the attendees on the technical requirements and target definitions in radiotherapy, as well as the application of PET/CT for radiotherapy planning in different types of cancers like lung cancer, head and neck cancer, prostate cancer and brain tumours.

Target Audience

  • All Nuclear Medicine Physicians (specialist or in training) interested in broadening or consolidating their knowledge on the use of PET/CT for Radiotherapy planning
  • Radiation Oncologists

Cardiovascular Track

This Track is provided by the European Association of Nuclear Medicine (EANM) in collaboration with the European Association of Cardiovascular Imaging (EACVI).

Cardiovascular Track is viewed as the go-to course for physicians planning to take the EANM/EACVI Certification exam in Nuclear Cardiology. Attendees will have the chance to be offered updates in the field, making the program an excellent refresher for nuclear cardiologists, cardiologists and residents. The course will offer:

  • Case-based clinical lecture format
  • Read with the Experts sessions
  • Mock exams
  • Opportunity for self-assessment

During the 3-day programme 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 will be offered. The program is organized in refresher sessions and clinical sessions on cross sectional anatomy, basic principles of radiopharmaceutical and equipment from SPECT and PET, imaging acquisition protocols, post-processing and imaging quantitation. Further, training on normalpatterns, physiological variants and pitfalls in the many different fields of nuclear cardiology will be provided.

In the second Track specific clinical setting will be discussed, including coronary heart disease diagnosis and management, amyloidosis, sarcoidosis, endocarditis and CIED related infections.

The organization of each clinical session is based on short focused lectures providing a practical approach for the choice of the best imaging procedure to answer a specific clinician questions in each step of 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 challenge in the application of the concepts they learned. During hands-on sessions participants will experience reading and self-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.

It is suggested to follow the Cardio Track in case you are planning to take the EANM/EACVI Certification exam in Nuclear Cardiology, which is designed to certify professional excellence, practical experience and knowledge in the field. This Exam is provided by the European Association of Cardiovascular Imaging (EACVI) in collaboration with the European Association of Nuclear Medicine (EANM). Further information can be found online at www.escardio.org

Target audience

Nuclear medicine physicians, nuclear cardiologists, cardiologists, residents

Educational Objectives

The aim of this track is to

  • refresh the basis of functional imaging of the heart
  • learn about the principles, protocols and instrumentations for SPECT/CT and PET/CT imaging in cardiovascular disease
  • understand when to use which imaging method in CAD, HF, Sarcoidosis, Amyloidosis, Infectious Endocarditis and CIED Infections
  • learn how to acquire, post-process and interpret MPI and viability studies with SPECT/CT (including new dedicated systems) and PET/CT technologies
  • learn how to acquire, post-process and interpret PET/CT and WBC imaging in patients with CVS infection and inflammation
  • learn to recognize the most common source of artefacts and pitfalls
  • learn how to select the best imaging procedure to answer a specific clinician questions in each step of the clinical decision-making process
  • train yourself with reading and self-reporting sessions

Keywords

MPI, SPECT/CT, PET/CT, report, infection & inflammation imaging, nuclear certification
