Course information
This course is aimed at final-year residents, general radiologists, nuclear medicine physicians and oncologists who want to update their knowledge on new applications and state-of-the-art hybrid medical imaging of cancer. No previous practical experience of the subject is required. The expert faculty comprises nuclear medicine physicians and radiologists who will provide a series of lectures describing optimal imaging pathways for oncological diagnosis, follow-up and response assessment. Lectures will be followed by interactive workshops, presented jointly by faculty specialists.

Learning objectives
  • to learn the principles of hybrid medical imaging
  • to learn the key clinical questions at different points in the patient’s journey
  • to understand the indications, limitations and comparative merits of each part in hybrid medical imaging in a wide range of oncologic conditions and how it relates to other modalities
  • to appreciate the complementary roles of structural and functional/molecular imaging in cancer management
  • to understand hybrid medical imaging pathways for a range of different tumour types including non-small cell lung cancer, lymphoma, head and neck, prostate and gynaecological cancer
  • to understand how information derived from imaging guides patient selection for treatment and supports individualised treatment planning
