Join us for our upcoming meeting, where we’ll be covering a broad range of topics related to PET-CT, with the aim of improving the care of those who require PET-CT scanning. We will look at novel and emerging technologies, how PET-CT scans can be used for various diseases, and the future of PET-CT delivery.

By attending, you will:

  • Learn the best practices in the clinical use of PET-CT scans
  • Learn about novel tracers entering the UK market and their uses, including antibody PET
  • Explore the pitfalls that can occur on PET-CT scans in people with complex clinical problems and modern cancer treatments
  • Gain a clear understanding of the role of PET-CT in non-cancerous diseases
  • Learn how PET is used in different countries
  • Appreciate the roles of integrated care boards and specialised services in the future of PET-CT delivery in the NHS
  • Understand how AI could impact PET-CT reporting
