SNM recognizes exemplary contributors in nuclear medicine

The 53rd Annual Meeting of SNM in San Diego witnessed a meeting of 4,000 professionals and 6,500 participants from the molecular imaging and nuclear medicine branch// and this meeting was marked by a detailed discussion spread over five days.

“SNM continues to successfully offer a unique opportunity for society members and nonmembers to focus on new and evolving aspects of nuclear medicine and molecular imaging and to further develop expertise in their particular areas of interest,” said Frederic H. Fahey, chair of the society’s Scientific Program Committee. “The opportunities to enhance and promote the profession and the free flow of knowledge and information make these event physicians, technologists and scientists look forward to each year,” added the director of nuclear medicine/PET physics at Children's Hospital Boston.

“It’s an exciting time in the field of nuclear medicine and molecular imaging, and the program delivered by SNM and its Technologist Section provided attendees with the information and tools necessary to expand their understanding of human disease—all in the hope of advancing patient care,” said Fahey, who is also an associate professor of radiology at Harvard Medical School. Nearly 2,000 scientific and technologist abstracts were presented at this meeting covering a wide range of topics including cardiology (ischemia, coronary artery stenosis, coronary angiography); neurology (Alzheimer’s, obesity, dementia, ADHD, anorexia nervosa); oncology (pancreas, breast and lung cancers, leukemia, chemotherapy response); pediatrics (Hodgkin’s disease, lymphoma); infectious disease (fever of unknown origin); computers and instrumentation; endocrinology (diabetes); musculoskeletal (spinal tuberculosis, back pain); and technologist issues related to radiation safety, contrast agents, psychological aspects of dealing with patients, radiopharmaceutical use and imaging of claustrophobic patients. “SNM’s 54th Annual Meeting, which will be held June 2–6, 2007, in Washington, D.C., will continue the tradition of offering outstanding scientific and educational sessions,” said Fahey.
