International congress (NEW DATES!):
- 3rd European Congress on Imaging Infection and Inflammation - Rome (Italy) December 9-12, 2019
(book your seat now for free!)

Imaging infections and inflammation

Following a tradition started in 1993, we present the third edition of the International Congress "Imaging infections and inflammation", which will be held in Rome from 9 to 12 December 2019.

Many news also this year. The congress will have all interactive sessions and each participant, equipped with a remote control can participate in the presentation of clinical cases. Each topic will be treated exhaustively from radiological and nuclear medicine point of view with the participation of clinicians, experts in the field, who will moderate the various sessions.

There will be also sessions dedicated to the presentation of scientific abstracts by the participants.

After two days of interactive conference, there will be a two-day advanced theoretical-practical course with limited places, both in English and in Italian, to learn the techniques for labelling white blood cells, acquisition, processing and interpretation of images.

Given the limited places for this course, this year you have the "book now and pay later" registration procedure.

This year we have as main objective to provide an advanced knowledge on diagnostic imaging of infection and inflammation (including bacterial imaging) with particular attention to the methods of hybrid nuclear and radiological imaging, as well as to the practical aspects of imaging with labelled leukocytes.

All participants to the entire course will receive a European certification of attendance to the advanced course.

Thanks to the help of the sponsors, we are able to maintain a low registration fee, as it is always for our congresses and symposia.

Scientific Seminar: “Tumor microenvironment and imaging of T-cells”

We are pleased to announce a free special scientific seminar dedicated to “Tumor microenvironment and imaging of T-cells”. The seminar will take place on the 10th of July 2017 in Roma, S. Andrea Hospital at 4 pm, in collaboration with the International Research Group on ImmunoScintigraphy and Therapy (IRIST). Lectures will be given by speakers of international level:
Professor Paola Nisticò(Department of Research, Advanced Diagnostic and Technological Innovation Translational Research Functional Departmental Area Regina Elena National Cancer Institute, Rome, IT) who will discuss the role of tumor microenvironment and its importance in cancer development;
Professor Anna Wu (Department of Molecular and Medical Pharmacology, David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA, USA.) who will discuss implications of non-invasive imaging using PET enables profiling tumor and immune system biology throughout the body.

The Heart by Nuclear Medicine

High level update on nuclear cardiology especially designed for cardiologists with interest in nuclear medicine modalities for studying cardiac perfusion, metabolism, function, innervation, infection and inflammation.
Optimal schedule also for nuclear medicine physicians and students in training to achieve a high level of knowledge on the newest applications of nuclear medicine in cardiology.

Free abstracts will be accepted for oral/poster presentations.

Registration fees are as low as possible to allow students, in particular, to participate.

Advanced course: Development of radiopharmaceuticals: from laboratory techniques to human clinical studies (Part 2)

Each unit will be performed as theoretical and practical teaching. Teaching material will be distributed to all students. The final thesis for each student consists in a written assay of one of the topic discussed, to be agreed by one teacher.
Courses will be performed at Nuclear Medicine Discovery headquarters in Via Lucilio 53, 00136 Rome, Italy and in several affiliated laboratories.

Clinical Nuclear Medicine update in bone and cardiovascular diseases and prostate cancer

This new event organised by Nu.Me.D. in the Hotel Nettuno, Catania, Italy, from June 1 to 2, 12018, with the scientific supervision of Dr. Sveva Auletta, Dr. Luigi Castorina, Dr. Marco Chianelli, Prof. A. Maes, Prof. A. Signore, Prof. C. van de Wiele, aims at bringing fully comprehensive update in 3 focused areas of nuclear medicine: orthopaedic diseases; cardiovascular diseases and prostate cancer.
There will be several lectures given by national and international experts, in the morning of 1st and 2nd of June.
In the afternoon of the 1st of June there will be also an additional session in Italian language, with national speakers, covering the most relevant topics of these 3 areas.
