|Date||Apr 4-8, 2022|
|Duration||1 week (Mo-Fri)|
|Organizer||IFAMP and Medical University of Vienna and IAEA|
Medical physicists, physician scientists, medical doctors, biomedical engineers
We will arrange also for local visits of the local Theranostics and Radiopharmacy unit, situation permitting.
This 5-day course will be a mix of presentations, Q&A sessions and hands-on. Faculty will be made of renown international and local experts.
Our inter-/national faculty comes with deep knowledge in nuclear medicine, imaging and therapies, imaging physics and methodologies, data processing, radiochemistry and -pharmacy, regulatory affairs and sciences. Their lectures will be complemented by visits to local imaging and therapy facilities so as to combine theoretical and practice know-how.
