Road to RSNA 2013: Molecular Imaging Preview

The field of molecular imaging and nuclear medicine continues to attract great enthusiasm for what many observers see as limitless possibilities for an expanding range of clinical applications.

Of particular note is Sunday's nuclear medicine poster session (CL-NMS-SUB, 1:00 p.m.-1:30 p.m., Room S503AB), which offers six studies on the roles of FDG and choline with PET/CT to assess various forms of cancer.

In the opening presentation, Dr. Erik Paulson, chairman of the department of radiology at Duke University School of Medicine, details the value of iodinated contrast and PET/CT. In addition, Dr. Andrea Rockall, a professor and a consultant radiologist with the Imperial College Healthcare NHS Trust, shows how to recognize typical findings on FDG-PET/CT in pelvic malignancies, as well as gynecologic and urologic cancers.
