The International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) is organizing the International Conference on Clinical PET–CT and Molecular Imaging: PET–CT in the Era of Multimodality Imaging and Image Guided Therapy (IPET-2015), following the success of the IPET-2007 and IPET-2011 conferences held, respectively, in Bangkok, Thailand, and Vienna, Austria. Medical imaging technology has revolutionized health care over the past 30 years; it enables early diagnosis and improves patient outcomes. The synergistic use of multimodality imaging provides excellent information during the different stages of disease, as well as assessment of response to treatment in a safe and non-invasive manner, and it therefore allows the delivery of tailored clinical management for patients.

Changes at molecular and cellular levels provide vital clues for evaluating the effectiveness of chosen clinical treatment plans. These are also reflected through streamlined and emerging radiopharmaceuticals used in positron emission tomography (PET) imaging. This conference will provide a forum for clinicians, imaging specialists and scientists to review the important clinical aspects of cancer management and assessment of other diseases. It will also critically examine the pivotal role of streamlined and emerging multimodality imaging techniques with a view to addressing the health challenges common to many Member States.

In addition, a special session on “Ethics, Leadership and Education” will provide an opportunity for participants to review theoretical tools necessary to prepare themselves for leadership in their respective professions.

An appropriate number of accredited Continuing Medical Education (CME) credits will be awarded to participants.

Programme structure

The entire scientific programme is tailored using a clinical systems based approach for every session with an initial discussion on the important clinical aspects of the disease or condition to which the session is devoted, followed by sessions on the role of PET-CT and other imaging modalities. In the early afternoon on each day of the conference, breakout sessions for physicians, physicists, technologists, radiographers, radiopharmacists and radiochemists will be conducted in parallel. Each clinical session will include a main lecture and a related 'read with the experts' session. The sessions on radiopharmacy and on physics and instrumentation will include workshops on selected topics.
