This two-day course fills the educational gap for radiologists who have not had fellowship training in nuclear medicine and who are interpreting general nuclear medicine studies. Get “hands-on” experience with a case simulator to learn how to accurately perform and interpret a variety of nuclear medicine cases in both routine and challenging scenarios.

This course covers the appropriate use of commonly performed nuclear medicine studies for a variety of disease processes and how to correctly perform and interpret these studies. Protocols for performing nuclear medicine studies and interpretation guidelines for general nuclear medicine studies have evolved and new radiopharmaceuticals require training for correct interpretation.
