Don't Miss this Special Announcement

Julian E. Bailes, MD — a recognized leader in the field of neurosurgery and the impact of brain injury on brain function — will make a special announcement regarding the Brain SAFTIE (Scanning to Assess for Traumatic Injury and Encephalopathy) Study during the Opening Plenary of SNMMI's Annual Meeting.

SNMMI Publishes New Appropriate Use Criteria for V/Q Imaging

SNMMI has released a new AUC for ventilation/perfusion (V/Q) imaging in pulmonary embolism. Beginning January 1, 2018, all referring physicians/ordering professionals will be REQUIRED to consult AUC using a clinical decision support mechanism before ordering any nuclear medicine study.

SPECT/CT Combined with Fluorescence Imaging Detects Micrometastases

Researchers in The Netherlands have demonstrated that combining SPECT/CT and fluorescence imaging could help surgeons differentiate tumor tissue from normal tissue. The research is detailed in the featured basic science article of the May 2017 issue of The Journal of Nuclear Medicine.

Applications Are Now Being Accepted
