Scientific Program

Based on a multi-topic, well balanced and innovative program, our National Congress and BCNM will be ideally integrated into WFNMB. Our top priority is to give the opportunity to the developing countries and the Balkan and Southern Mediterranean region delegates, to exchange ideas with international experts & share best practices. More specifically:

  • “Non-stop Hands-on” Courses Continuous hands-on courses of several clinical topics, using clusters of widely applied work-stations and involving exceptional “coaches”.
  • Lectures and Sessions Apart from the normal scientific structure (lectures, oral & poster presentations), we have incorporated into the WFNBM program:
    • Economic and “cost-effectiveness” sessions. A thorough discussion about the cost-effectiveness of radioisotopic imaging and therapies is of profound interest
    • “Developing Countries” session: The session will present and analyze the status and the perspectives of Nuclear medicine in developing countries
    • Collaboration Sessions: Dedicated joint sessions with other scientific societies (radiology, cardiology, oncology, endocrinology) in order to enhance the clinical, educative and research collaboration
  • Continuous Education Sections Rising Stars Program: Designed especially for residents and trainee nuclear medicine physicians. It will be consisted of Basic Sessions, Case-Based Diagnosis Training, Highlighted Lectures and Quiz
