State of the Art Positron Emission Tomography

Positron Emission Tomography (PET) provides 3D maps of tissue function which are used routinely for diagnosis and response assessment in oncology, and to a lesser extent, cardiology and neurology. The technology required to capture these images is constantly in development. In this seminar, Heather sums up recent innovations in PET and how they are expected to benefit patients.

Dr Heather Williams will be speaking in the following theatre:

Theatre 13 - Tuesday 12.30 - 13.00: State of the Art Positron Emission Tomography
