Experts in traumatic brain injury and chronic traumatic encephalopathy gathered in Dallas, Texas, on May 6-7 for the Brain SAFTIE (Scanning to Assess For Traumatic Injury and Encephalopathy) Symposium. The participating physicians and scientists gave presentations on the current state of research in the field, identified gaps in existing knowledge, and discussed ways to address these gaps moving forward.
The symposium was organized by SNMMI’s Clinical Trials Network and supported by Nucleus Bio.
**Julian E. Bailes, MD, will make a special announcement on the new SAFTIE Study at the SNMMI Annual Meeting Opening Plenary on June 11 in Denver, Colorado.**
