As diagnostic techniques evolve from the systems to the molecular level, the role of multimodality molecular imaging becomes increasingly important. PET, SPECT and MRI are powerful techniques for in vivo molecular imaging. The hybrid combination of PET (or SPECT) and MRI, enabling truly simultaneous acquisition, is expected to bridge the gap between molecular and systems diagnosis.
By continuing the newly established and successful series of PET-MR/SPECT-MR Conference (2012-Elba Island- Italy, 2013 Julich-Germany, 2014-Kos, Greece) we are delighted to announce that in 2015 we return to Italy for the PSMR2015, the Fourth Conference on PET-MR and SPECT-MR, sponsored by Pisa University-INFN, the Technological Institute of Athens, Juelich Forschungszentrum, and the COST Action PET-MRI TD-1007, The conference is scheduled for May 17-20, 2015 at the Hotel Hermitage on “la Biodola” gulf , in the beautiful Elba island near Pisa (Italy).
The conference will not only cover all the technological aspects of both sequential and simultaneous PET/MR and SPECT/MR systems and their clinical and preclinical application, but also ample space will be given to dedicated systems, novel technologies and new tracers. An industrial session is scheduled where the various companies can provide the latest information on their products in this field.
We are looking forward to welcoming you at the Conference.
