Words of Welcome

The EANM is pleased to announce its sixth Focus Meeting on the topic of breast cancer. The event will take place from January 30 to February 1, 2025, in St. Paul’s Bay, in the mythic island of Malta.

Breast cancer is the most widespread cancer in the women population worldwide. It is a major global concern, being one of the leading causes of cancer-related morbi-mortality.

With the motto of ‘Shaping the Future of Breast Cancer Care with Molecular Imaging’, we invite you to join a multidisciplinary and international group of experts from all the important medical specialties dedicated to improving care for patients with breast cancer. The group of panellists is composed of representatives from some of the most important medical organisations that work on breast cancer: the European Association of Nuclear Medicine (EANM), the European Society of Breast Imaging (EUSOBI), the European Society of Surgical Oncology (ESSO), the European Society for Radiotherapy and Oncology (ESTRO), and the European patient’s representative coalition Europa Donna.

During this upcoming Focus Meeting, we want to critically analyse the role of imaging in breast cancer, by exploring the utility of nuclear medicine techniques in different clinical settings, especially: initial systemic staging, assessment of response to therapy, and detection of recurrence. The aim of the meeting is to reach a final consensus on the current state of the art in nuclear medicine imaging in breast cancer and to generate expert recommendations on how to best guide professionals in their clinical decisions. Furthermore, new developments in radiopharmaceuticals and treatment/theranostic approaches will be discussed. Finally, we also intend to identify the controversial topics and aspects with limited evidence, to provide action points to solve and to better address them.

We are confident that, together, throughout this meeting on this wonderful island, we will highlight the bright future that lies ahead in the field of breast cancer.

Join us for the EANM Focus Meeting 6, at St. Paul’s Bay, Malta, from January 30 to February 1, 2025.

Please note that registrations are limited to a maximum of 250 participants and will be allocated on a first-come, first-served basis. Make sure to sign up in a timely manner!

We look forward to welcoming you in Malta next year!
