Two day course on PET-CT takes place in London

Siemens Healthcare Diagnostics UK : 07 November, 2013  (Company News)
Attendees have travelled from across Europe to take place in a course on PET-CT technology run by Siemens Healthcare
Two day course on PET-CT takes place in London


A dedicated two-day course, designed to introduce and build knowledge of PET-CT technology and procedures, has been successfully completed by radiologists, physicists, and radiographers from the UK and Europe.



Supported by Siemens Healthcare and Lilly UK, the two day preceptorship held at Hammersmith Hospital’s Conference Centre also included a half-day training session at Charing Cross Hospital, part of Imperial College Healthcare NHS Trust. The sessions offered comprehensive lectures by leading experts in PET-CT, intensive hands-on experience in interpreting PET-CT, and the opportunity to fully explore the role of PET-CT in diagnosis, staging and response to therapy.



During the course, clinical delegates had the opportunity to learn about the physics of PET-CT, radiopharmacy and the role of the technologist, plus learn more about the technology through a combination of lectures and practical interpretation sessions. Topics in these streams included: PET-CT in Lymphoma, Lung Cancer, Respiratory Gating, Gynaecology, GI Malignancies including Ga-68 DOTATATE imaging, Non Oncology PET-CT, Infection and Inflammation, Neurology and Cardiac PET, novel applications and developments in PET-CT.



“We successfully held our fourth Imperial PET-CT course under the auspices of the EANM (European Association of Nuclear Medicine) and with generous support from Siemens,” states Professor Adil Al-Nahhas, Chief of Service of Nuclear Medicine at Imperial College Healthcare Trust.



Prof Al-Nahhas continues, “The course provided an intensive hands-on experience in interpreting PET-CT in Oncology using FDG and novel tracers such F-FLT, F-choline, and Ga-Dotatate for which this center has leading expertise. It attracted 22 external delegates with seven international participants. The feedback received was very encouraging, exceeding our expectations - the majority of delegates were satisfied with the organisation of the course, felt the content was appropriate and beneficial to their clinical practice, and found the interactive sessions useful. 80% of participants rated the course as either ‘above average’ or ‘best ever yet’ compared to similar meetings”.



Lawrence Foulsham, Molecular Imaging Product Manager at Siemens Healthcare, states, “The Imperial PET-CT course is a demonstration of our dedication to the education of our customers and clinicians. The structure of the sessions, combining the sharing of news with informative lectures and interactive hands-on experience, ensured that it was a beneficial learning experience for all of the delegates.”
