Paediatric Track
Nephro-Urology and Musculoskeletal Studies

The program of the track was organised to cover the most frequent benign paediatric pathologies found in a nuclear medicine department.  The main diseases referred to a nuclear medicine department with experience in Paediatrics are on the field of nephro-urology and musculoskeletal diseases. The role that multimodality imaging has on their diagnostic work-up it going to be revised, with a focus on nuclear medicine studies.

The track consists of 6 sessions, 3 dedicated to nephro-urology and 3 to bone & joint diseases.

Regarding nephro-urology, the focus will be on childhood urinary tract infections, evaluation of the dilated urinary tract and other frequent congenital anomalies. Static and dynamic renal scintigraphy will be both detailed, as well as radionuclide studies for the evaluation of vesicoureteral reflux and lower tract dysfunction.

As for musculoskeletal topics, the main procedure to be detailed will be bone scintigraphy, with the complementary role in it of both SPECT and SPECT/CT. In terms of pathology, the focus will be in the limping child, trauma (including child abuse), infection, inflammation and other benign bone & joint diseases.

In both areas, the track will start by sessions that will allow the attendees to revise preparatory webinars in radiopharmaceuticals and nuclear medicine protocols. These will be followed by lectures on radiologic studies.

In summary, through lectures, case-reading and hands-on sessions, procedures details, pitfalls, indications and accuracy of methods will be extensively covered.

The whole track will be developed in close multimodality collaboration, between nuclear medicine experts and an experienced paediatric radiologist.

Educational Objectives

  • To provide the necessary skills to perform multimodality imaging in children and adolescents
  • To learn how to integrate multimodality imaging into different paediatric clinical settings

Target Audience

Medical specialists and physicians in-training (residents) with special interest in paediatric nuclear medicine and paediatric multimodality imaging

Speakers

Ana Isabel Santos – Hospital Garcia de Orta, EPE – Almada (Portugal)
Diego De Palma – Ospedale di Circolo – Varese (Italy)
Osnat Konen – Schneider Children’s Medical Center of Israel, Petach-Tikva (Israel)

Cardiovascular Track

The Cardiovascular Track (Cardio) will offer the roadshow to get all of your questions on multimodality imaging in coronary heart disease (perfusion and function) and cardiovascular infection & inflammation answered by experienced professionals in a high interactive forum.

The format of the Cardiovascular track has been created to provide during a 1.5-day program 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. The program is organized in refresher sessions and clinical sessions focused on multimodality imaging in coronary heart disease and cardiovascular infection & inflammation. During the refresher session basic concept on cross sectional anatomy, radiopharmaceutical and imaging acquisition protocols with a special session on imaging quantitation will be provided. Each of them will be accompanied with interactive case example of normal anatomy and variants as well as basic examples of multimodality imaging, including hybrid imaging examples. The training on specific clinical setting of coronary heart disease will include two consecutive sessions focused on coronary artery disease diagnosis and patients’ management, respectively and on cardiovascular infection & inflammation. The organization of clinical session is based on short focused lectures providing a practical approach for the choice of the best imaging procedure to answer specific clinician questions step-wise in 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 challenged in the application of the instructed concepts. During hands-on sessions participants will experience reading and 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. With the cardiovascular multidisciplinary team discussion that will represents the forum for the discussion of the main findings of the hands-on sessions, we aim to simulate the daily team-work setting and provide attendees the skills needed, such as communication, interactivity and education skills.
