May 24, 2021 @ 1:00 pm - May 25, 2021 @ 5:00 pm

IPEM logo

An introduction to PET Physics, including the physical principles underpinning PET, quality control of PET scanners, common imaging procedures and radiation protection. We will look at issues surrounding image reconstruction, standardising image quality, common artefacts, and the use of PET in multi-centre trials.  The course is designed to provide a basic core of knowledge for those supporting PET systems.  The course has been designed with medical physicists (including STP trainees), senior technologists and senior radiographers in mind, but all are welcome.

There will be presentations on variations in hardware and software between the main manufacturers, given by healthcare professionals with first-hand experience.
