Description

This presentation will show actual and upcoming applications of nuclear medicine and molecular imaging for minimizing medical and surgical interventions. There are several ways nuclear medicine and molecular imaging can do this: (1) early detection of potentially lesion (rule-in/rule-out); (2) easier targeting of biopsies; (3) better detection of micro-metastases and tumor margins during oncological surgery; (4) help in deciding minimal invasive, standard surgical, or watch-and wait approaches; and (5) early detection of residual disease or recurrence, among others.
