  1. 1. CLINICAL NUCLEAR MEDICINE / PET 2009 Harvard Medical School Department of Continuing Education Joint Program in Nuclear Medicine May 12-15, 2009 PROGRAM DIRECTOR S Ted Treves, MD, FACNP PROGRAM COMMITTEE Marcelo F Di Carli, MD Frederic H Fahey, DSc Frederick D Grant, MD J Anthony Parker, MD, PhD Annick D Van den Abbeele, MD Boston Marriott Long Wharf Boston, Massachusetts, USA CROSS-SECTIONAL IMAGING FOR NUCLEAR MEDICINE PHYSICIANS COURSE DIRECTORS Annick D Van den Abbeele, MD Marcelo F Di Carli, MD S Ted Treves, MD, FACNP May 11, 2009 Boston Marriott Long Wharf Boston, Massachusetts, USA AND
  2. 2. COURSE DESCRIPTION - CLINICAL NUCLEAR MEDICINE CNM/PET 2009 will cover emerging as well as established applications in nuclear medicine. This year’s course will encourage interactive audience participation including case-based discussions with concrete clinical illustrations. Day I will cover several aspects of nuclear oncology including practical aspects of PET/CT, multimodality imaging of several cancers, staging, treatment planning, therapy assessments, and case-based studies. Days II and III will include a session on state-of-the-art physics and instrumentation providing valuable information to those considering upgrades or new equipment. In addition, speakers will give an overview of the thyroid, parathyroid, and hepatobiliary systems; will discuss lymphoscintigraphy; and will explain the use of nuclear medicine in inflammation and infection. Current concepts in radionuclide therapy will be reviewed with an emphasis on oncologic applications. There will also be a session on the importance of recognizing and reducing PET artifacts to achieve a more accurate interpretation of studies. Pediatric nuclear medicine case based studies will be presented with interactive audience participation. Neuronuclear medicine covering neurodegenerative disorders, seizures and brain tumors will also be covered. Day IV will be dedicated to nuclear cardiology, reviewing classic as well as advanced applications. In addition to cardiac case studies, we will address radiotracers and protocols for SPECT and PET myocardial perfusion; the metabolic assessment of myocardial viability; and hybrid imaging (PET/CT) interpretation. Distinguished guest faculty and members of the faculty of the Harvard Medical School’s Joint Program in Nuclear Medicine will update physicians, scientists, and technologists on the latest techniques in nuclear medicine as well as those under development and slated for clinical implementation in the future. Specialists in CT, MRI and other imaging modalities will join nuclear medicine specialists in discussing the importance of producing interdisciplinary assessments of functional and anatomical relationships. Finally, faculty will offer a glimpse into new and emerging methodologies that are likely to become part of standard nuclear medicine practice. COURSE OBJECTIVES The 33rd Harvard Annual Course in Nuclear Medicine, CNM/PET 2009, will review established and emerging applications with an emphasis on promoting interactive exchange between faculty and attendees. As an expected outcome, participants will be able to immediately apply newly attained knowledge to the performance and interpretation of nuclear medicine studies with greater accuracy and by introducing state-of-art techniques into clinical practice.

Attendees will review and interpret approximately fifty CT and MRI examinations under the supervision of a Radiologist. Studies will be distributed among head and neck, thorax, abdomen, pelvis, musculoskeletal system and pediatrics. The course will encourage interactive audience participation using case-based discussions. Course faculty includes experts from Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, Brigham and Women’s Hospital and Children’s Hospital Boston. This course will be followed by the Harvard postgraduate course Clinical Nuclear Medicine/PET 2009 (May 12-15). COURSE OBJECTIVES • Standard practice for reviewing and describing normal cross-sectional anatomy will be discussed. • Participants will be able to identify common pathology in CT and MRI examinations of the neck, thorax, abdomen, pelvis and musculoskeletal system. • Participants will be able to recognize important incidental findings in CT and MRI examinations of the neck, thorax, abdomen, pelvis and musculoskeletal system.
