Society of Nuclear Medicine hosts Mid-Winter Educational Meeting

December 20, 2002

The Society of Nuclear Medicine will open its annual Mid-Winter Educational Symposium on January 25-26, 2003, at the Westin Diplomat Resort in Hollywood, Florida. The symposium will host nuclear medicine physicians, radiologists, cardiologists, oncologists, neurologists, technologists, scientists, pharmacists, industry leaders, and members of the press involved and interested in current and emerging technical and clinical applications of nuclear medicine. A faculty of noted physicians, scientists, and technologists will provide expert insight on the rapidly emerging field of molecular imaging and the advancing role of nuclear medicine in diagnosis and therapy.

Ten in-depth symposia will be presented, each of which offers continuing education credits. Of special interest this year is a strong emphasis on the expanding base of scientific knowledge needed in current nuclear medicine practice and on those emerging technologies that promise to provide extraordinary advances in treatment and patient care.

Among the highlights of the meeting will be:
Additional information on the meeting, as well as important dates for registration is available at the SNM Web site at www.snm.org.

The Society of Nuclear Medicine is an international scientific and professional organization of more than 14,000 members dedicated to promoting the science, technology, and practical applications of nuclear medicine. The SNM is based in Reston, VA.
