Nordic PET Workshop

16th - 18th January 2023

About the course

The first two days provide the underpinning knowledge of the technical principles of PET imaging, including: PET instrumentation; acquisition and reconstruction settings and their influence on image quality; PET quantification; image analysis and interpretation; and PET quality control. The third day covers optimising PET acquisition and processing protocols, finding the best compromises between required image quality, quantification, scan time and radiation dose, for the range of clinical PET examinations. It further covers motion management and advanced practices such as 4D imaging and multiparametric PET, and addresses how to validate new techniques and protocol changes. Learning is achieved through both theoretical and practical sessions.

Audience

This three-day course is intended for doctors, physicists, radiographers, technologists, nurses and other health professionals working with Siemens PET-CT systems.
