We are delighted to announce our first ever, comprehensive British PET/CT Course, developed exclusively for Nuclear Medicine/Radiology Trainees, Consultant Nuclear Medicine Physicians, Technologists, and Consultant Radiologists with an interest in Nuclear Medicine.
This three-day CPD course (which will be held virtually) will cover Oncological PET/CT Imaging primarily. In addition, we will also look at the role of PET/CT in Therapy, Prostate Cancer Imaging, PET/CT in Neuroendocrine Imaging, Neurological imaging (dementia), Cardiac imaging, and Infection/Inflammation.
Led by our clinical lead Dr Randeep Kulshrestha, Clinical Director Radiology & Trust Lead for Nuclear Medicine at University Hospitals Bristol and Weston NHS Foundation Trust, our first two days will include a range of knowledge-share sessions, and PET scan cases, relating to Oncological imaging with Infection/inflammation .
Culminating in an exciting final day, join renowned national and international specialists, including Professor Michael Hofman, Associate Professor Patrick Veit-Haibach and Professor Sobhan Vinjamuri, as we look at PET/CT imaging within Cardiac and Dementia cases, as well as Therapy.
