The SNMMI's PET Center of Excellence is an organizational component within the SNMMI dedicated to all aspects of the development and utilization of positron emission tomography (PET), PET/CT, and PET/MR in the detection and management of disease. Two primary areas of focus of the center are educational programs and practical issues directly related to PET, PET/CT, and PET/MR including clinical practice and procedure guidelines, as well as reimbursement.
The Peter E Valk, MD Memorial Lectureship and Award was created to honor the memory of Dr Valk, a pioneer in the establishment of PET as an important clinical study. This Award recognizes individuals who have made significant contributions to the advancement of PET, including PET/CT, PET/MRI and other emerging technologies , as well as those individuals who are dedicated to the PET Center of Excellence. Congratulations to Dr Johannes Czernin, the recipients of the 2022 Peter E. Valk, MD Memorial Lectureship and Award.
