As the scope of the SNMMI Annual Meeting continues to expand, so does our enthusiasm to provide attendees with a truly global perspective on the discipline of nuclear medicine and molecular imaging. This year, the Annual Meeting will highlight the latest advances in research, technology, and clinical practice in Germany, including sessions on the following topics:
A Fluciclovine Live Reader Training Session will take place on Friday, June 9, 2017 from 12:00-3:00 pm. The purpose of this session is to train nuclear medicine and radiology physicians to properly interpret Fluciclovine F18 scans in recurrent prostate cancer patients. This 3-hour training session will include a review of the Fluciclovine F18 Image Interpretation Training slides, and the facilitated interpretation of at least ten DICOM PET/CT image sets. The emphasis will be on highlighting key findings of each case and addressing potential clinical challenges of image interpretation. Each participant will be provided with iPad with pre-loaded cases. Trainers circulating in the room will assist participants with one-on-one questions. After individual review, each case will be read by presenter, highlighting the findings, and then questions will be answered as a group.
Register now to join us for this 3-hour, hands-on, case review training session. Don’t miss out this great opportunity to learn how to accurately interpret the newly approved agent, Fluciclovine F18. Please note: Registration for this session is free, but separate from your Annual Meeting registration. Space is limited to the first 100 registrants.
Additional registration fees may apply. Categorical seminar is included for Weekend Only Attendees
SNMMI's Annual Meeting offers full-day categorical seminars to provide you with a deeper level of understanding as you examine a single topic of clinical, scientific, or academic interest.

The CT and MRI case reviews will provide 12 hours of review over two consecutive days for nuclear medicine professionals. Attendees will review and interpret 52 CT studies and 48 MRI case studies under the direct supervision of a board-certified radiologist. Topic areas include: Abdomen, Pelvis, Chest with Cardiac, Musculoskeletal with Spine, and Neuro (Brain/Head and Neck).
This three part session is designed for the nuclear medicine technologist program directors or any nuclear medicine technologist with an interest in education. The course will explore interactive learning techniques, including a various strategies to enhance student engagement, flipped classroom environments, and how NMT programs are meeting the demands of training entry-level technologists. In addition, the new NMTCB CT exam will be discussed, along with changes in the self-study documentation and steps associated with the accreditation process.
Each year, the Center for Molecular Imaging Innovation and Translation (CMIIT) sponsors non-CE courses that highlight new agents, issues, and technologies.
Emerging Technologies and Techniques in Preclinical Imaging and Translation (Non-CE)
Monday, June 12 | 3:00-7:00 pm
This emerging technologies session hosted by the CMIIT Preclinical Task Force, is intended to provide key information on the current state of available technologies for preclinical imaging and to provide insight on specific applications related to these emerging technologies and techniques. The preclinical imaging community has experienced significant changes over the last 5 years with a number larger vendors stepping away from the market and new vendors and technologies filling those previously occupied spaces. This session will provide a general overview of new imaging technologies, examine toxicology regulatory requirements for translating new imaging compounds, and look at emerging technologies and techniques for imaging in tissue microenvironments and nanoparticles.
Additional registration fees apply.
The course covers adult and pediatric general nuclear medicine, PET/CT, and nuclear cardiology. Imaging protocols, image interpretation, and limitations/pitfalls will be reviewed. NRC rules and regulations also will be reviewed.
Additional registration fees apply.
This course is designed as a review for anyone preparing to sit for the NMTCB and/or the ARRT examinations. The course includes an 8-hour review session on Saturday and a mock registry examination on Sunday.
The review session will consist of a review of the Components of Preparedness statements, including the commonly performed tasks in specific content areas as well as review of the procedures, equipment, and pharmaceuticals commonly used. The mock examination will follow the typical registry examination format. Time is allowed for grading and discussion of the examination answers. Participants should bring calculators.
The review session will be informative as well as interactive and fun, with prizes awarded to participating students.
