(Organized by: COMSTECH & PNS)
Venue: COMSTECH Secretariat, Islamabad, Pakistan.
Date: 19-20 September 2023
Nuclear technology has transformed health sector by advancements in diagnostic and therapeutic modalities for non-communicable pathologies. Hybrid imaging, especially PET-CT has altogether changed the diagnostic horizon, especially in the management of cancer patients. However, not only Pakistan but most of the OIC countries are still lagging behind in hybrid imaging facilities, especially PET-CT imaging.
The indispensable role of PET-CT and hybrid imaging needs to be highlighted for the benefit of various stakeholders and patients. Furthermore, the emergent role of theranostics and advanced radionuclide therapies using alpha and beta emitters has given new insights in cancer treatment paradigms. These rapid advancements in the field of nuclear medicine warrant continual education of referring physicians, oncologists, nuclear physicians, medical physicists and technologists from OIC countries.
COMSTECH and Pakistan Nuclear Society are organizing the workshop to address the above-described needs of the medical community. International and local experts of nuclear medicine and its applications would contribute invited lectures. Local faculty and researchers are invited to share their research findings as contributed talks. The theme of the workshop would be on the changing horizons of Nuclear Medicine, incorporating the translation of basic laboratory research to clinical practice, establishment of clinical and technical standards, and the translation of molecular technological advances in diagnostic and therapeutic nuclear medicine.
