Words of Welcome

The European Association of Nuclear Medicine (EANM), the world-leading society for nuclear medicine, molecular imaging and theranostics, is pleased to announce the third edition of the EANM Focus Meeting – an annual conference in a new format that will take place in the first months of each year. It will supplement the very successful EANM Annual Congress in October and the educational events organised by EANM/ESMIT.

As all good things come in threes, it is our special pleasure to inform you that the third EANM Focus Meeting will be on “Molecular Imaging and Theranostics in Neuroendocrine Tumours”.
The treatment and care of patients with neuroendocrine tumours is truly multidisciplinary. Accordingly, at the EANM Focus Meeting, a multidisciplinary group of experts and opinion leaders from all over the world will present state of the art lectures and participate in consensus panels.

Meeting Co-chair

 

We are very pleased that, in close collaboration with the European Neuroendocrine Tumor Society (ENETS), a large faculty of oncologists, gastroenterologists, endocrinologists, surgeons, nuclear medicine physicians, radiologists, clinical and basic scientists and patient advocates has been recruited to lecture and participate in the discussions. They will provide an in-depth overview of the current state of the art and future directions in the management of neuroendocrine tumours, with a focus on the role of imaging and therapy in general and nuclear medicine in particular. Based on the conference’s results, a consensus statement will be produced. As the lectures and discussions will be at an advanced level and will not aim to provide basic overviews and education, the meeting will be particularly advantageous to clinicians who are already engaged in the diagnosis and treatment of neuroendocrine tumours.

You are cordially invited to attend the third EANM Focus Meeting in the Wyndham Grand Hotel in Athens, Greece, on January 30–February 1, 2020. Registrations are limited to 250 participants and will be allocated on a first-come, first-served basis, so please reserve your attendance as soon as possible.

We hope to welcome you to the beautiful city of Athens in early 2020 for the third edition of this exciting new EANM initiative.

 

With best personal regards,
Jolanta Kunikowska and Ken Herrmann
