About the Workshop

This joint workshop, presented by the Society of Nuclear Medicine and Molecular Imaging's (SNMMI) PET Center of Excellence  will focus on both the technical aspects of PET/MRI as well as the clinical utility of PET/MRI. The workshop will feature a mixture of invited scientific presentations, proffered papers, a poster session, small group discussion, and a keynote lecture. A young investigator award will be presented to students and early stage post-doctoral or physicians that will be selected from the oral paper presentations.


Educational Objectives:

  • Explain why attenuation correction is a challenge in PET/MRI and the various approaches being developed to solve this problem
  • Explain how MR can be used to aid in PET motion correction
  • Discuss prior and ongoing efforts to quantify the arterial input function from PET/MR images
  • Discuss how PET/MRI is currently used clinically and the near-term clinical applications.
