14th Scientific Congress of Polish Society of Nuclear Medicine

Dear Colleagues, Dear Friends,

The 14th Scientific Congress of Polish Society of Nuclear Medicine this year will be organized in Lublin on 28–30th May. This scientific event will provide an opportunity to deepen our knowledge and exchange insights and ideas. We hope that the scientific program will be interesting for most of you. A number of appreciated lecturers are invited to our meeting.

Two plenary sessions are planned. First one on Thursday, 29th May 2014, will be focused on PET study. This session will consist of four lectures: Professor Sona Balogowa “FDG PET/CT in oncology”, Professor Einat Even Sapir-Weizer “PET tracers for assessment of bone metastases”, Professor Arthuro Chiti “Oncological PET/CT beyond FDG” and Professor Leszek Królicki “RECIST and PERCIST criteria”. On the same day in Radiofarmacy session, Professor E. Mishani will talk about “Labeled tyrosine kinase inhibitors for PET imaging of EGFR in cancer”. Also on Thursday, Professor Maciej Pech will present the problems associated with radioembolization of the liver metastases from the radiological point of view. Professor Anna Celler will talk about the quantitative measurements in SPECT and PET study. The next plenary session, planned on Friday, 30th May 2014, will focus on cardiovascular system. There will be also four lectures: Professor Eyal Michani “The next generation of PET MPI agents”, Professor John Buscombe “Using PET to investigate cardiovascular inflammation”, Professor Reimier Slart “PET and SPECT in assessment of autonomic heart function” and Professor Mirosław Dziuk “PET/CT in development prospects in cardiology”. In the next session on Friday, 30th May 2014, the current requirements of radionuclide diagnosis of pulmonary embolism will be present by Professor Marica Bajc.

Apart from the above-mentioned, presented mostly in English, the rest of the lectures will be presented in Polish. We have several topics to be discussed. Sessions concerning radionuclide therapy, especially in brain tumors and in neuroendocrine tumors as well as in radioembolization of liver metastases, are planned. Our “evergreens”, like renoscintigraphy in children, will be supplemented with an interactive session. Continuation of the pediatric topics will be presented on the same day: cholescintigraphy in patients after liver transplantation and PET in children. We will also focus on the clinical point of view on sentinel nodule limphoscintigraphy and collaboration between surgeons and nuclear medicine physicians in the management of lytic tumors and gastric and colorectal cancers.

The Nuclear Medicine Review — “The best paper” session is planned on 30th May 2014.

I hope that this Congress will be interesting not only for Polish guests but also for the Friends from other countries.

We start on 28th May with the Opening at Targi Lublin (more details can be found in 14zjazdptmn.pl). The Closing Ceremony is planned on 30th May 2014.

The beautiful weather is ordered already, so we invite you to Lublin.
