Objectives:

Hybrid PET-imaging is now recognised as an indispensible tool in multiple facets of Oncology management, with clinical indications extending to Dementia, Cardiology and Infection. Hybrid imaging enables combined anatomical and functional information, and with the development of targeted molecular imaging probes, it has a key role in advancing personalised medicine and optimised patient care.

This  symposium  and  hands-on  workshop  jointly  organised  by the Department of Nuclear Medicine, University Hospital Zurich and Department  of  Diagnostic  Radiology, The University of Hong Kong aims to provide reporting radiologists  and nuclear  physicians a  comprehensive  update of  the  applications  of PET/CT in  clinical  practice, and  the  evolving applications  of PET/MR. A series  of didactic  lectures will be  followed  by illustrative hands-on  workshop that will be  held in two  parallel tracks; a basic  track that  covers general  PET/CT cases encountered in  clinical  practice, and an  advanced track  that includes the use of special tracers and PET/MR.
