SNM's 2010 Annual Meeting reveals latest developments in molecular imaging and nuclear medicine
Date:6/16/2010

the development of positron emission tomography (PET), presented the Cassen lectureship on the perspective of quantitative imaging. The lecture focused on learning more about molecular processes and pathways in cellular function using labeled biomarkers and integrating information for practical applications. Huang said that as imaging technology becomes more sophisticated, there is a greater need for analytical approaches that can analyze the image data, extract biological information and determine its medical relevance.

Also on June 7, SNM leadership called attention to three shortages that are currently plaguing the medical community: a shortage of radioisotopes, a shortage of reimbursement and a shortage of jobs for physicians and technologists.

The 57th Annual Meeting concluded on Wednesday, June 9, with an overview of the cutting-edge research presented throughout the sessions. The research demonstrated groundbreaking advances in many areas, including research on molecular imaging to identify the first signs of Alzheimer's disease and research on the detection of recurrent prostate cancer.

"We had a tremendous international presence at our meeting, with molecular imaging science as our common language," said Peter Herscovitch, M.D., chair of SNM's Scientific Program Committee. "Scientific abstract submissions came from 70 countries. In fact, 56% of this year's abstract submissions came from outside the United States."

Herscovitch said that the common theme that linked all of these participants together was the focus on using molecular imaging to understand the mechanisms of disease, to diagnose and determine the extent of disease and, ultimately, to improve the health of patients.
