PET/CT has become the standard-of-care imaging modality in cancer management and has garnered an evolving role in diagnosing neurodegenerative and oncologic diseases. This 150-case, three-day course is designed to provide practicing radiologists and nuclear medicine physicians with an intensive, hands-on experience in reading PET/CT.

Attendees will interpret more than 150 oncologic PET/CT scans. Each multiple-scan interpretation session concludes with a detailed review of the key findings. Through these sessions, the attendee will develop a higher level of expertise and confidence in interpreting PET/CT.

If you have already completed some formal course work on PET and/or PET/CT but only have limited experience reading scans in daily clinical practice, this course is for you.
