Date:6/16/2010

More than 5,100 physicians, technologists and members of the molecular imaging and nuclear medicine communities gathered in Salt Lake City for SNM's 57th Annual Meeting, held June 5-9. The meeting featured more than 1,400 scientific papers that represented groundbreaking research and development worldwide in molecular imaging and nuclear medicine.
