Highlights From SNMMI 2014

The key cardiology news coming out of the 2014 meeting for the Society of Nuclear Medicine and Molecular Imaging (SNMMI) in St. Louis, Mo., were two late-breaker cardiovascular imaging studies, and that all the key vendors introduced new PET/CT systems for the market. 

 

Among the most innovative system was Philips’ Vereos, which is the first on the market to offer digital PET detectors, which are supposed to offer greater image clarity over traditional analog photo-multipliers. Siemens also introduced a new software system for molecular imaging that allows accurate standard uptake value (SUV) comparisons between different vendor’s imaging systems, allowing images from other facilities and other vendor’s imaging systems to be viewed on one workstation. For more detail on these and other new technologies on the expo floor, watch the video Editor’s Choice of the Most Innovative Technology at SNMMI.

 

For a recap on SNMMI scientific meeting highlights and an overview of the new nuclear imaging technologies discussed at the meeting, watch the video interview with SNMMI’s Scientific Committee Chairman Satoshi Minoshima, M.D., Ph.D.

   

Below are some of the new items from SNMMI.
