Clinical case review, trouble shooting with experts and software demonstrations. it is our great pleasure to invite you for the fourth time in a row to our PET/MRI workshop in Tübingen. The programme includes ample time for intensive discussions on emerging applications of PET/MRI and its implication in research and clinical practice. We have invited internationally renowned experts from the fields of nuclear medicine, radiology and imaging science to provide a platform for a vital exchange of experiences. As in previous years, round table discussions will target immediate questions in the realms of innovative research, clinical applications, workflow issues and technical challenges linked to this new technology. The workshop is preceded by a 2-day handson course providing training and reading with the expert sessions to small interactive groups. We very much hope that with this programme we can again address a very interdisciplinary audience of clinical experts and imaging advocates to initiate a continuous lively exchange of perspectives, experiences and to foster vivid discussions on the future of PET/MRI. We are looking forward to welcoming you in Tübingen in February of 2015.

Mol. Imaging Ulrike Ernemann, MD Neuroradiology Konstantin Nikolaou, MD Bernd Pichler, PhD Programme The programme is divided into two blocks, which can be booked either separately or in combination: Block I (Mo-We) focuses on hands-on trainings, reading with the expert sessions and tutorials, which will provide basic know-how to small, interactive groups. It is recommended for early adopters of the PET/MRI technology and imaging technologists. Block II (We-Fri) places emphasis on interactive, moderated dialogue boards. This block contains also full presentations by internationally renowned experts.

Mol. Imaging, Tübingen Bernd Pichler, PhD Nina Schwenzer, MD PET/MR, Dept. of Radiology, Tübingen “The 2014 PET/MR workshop in Tübingen was again a great meeting which gathered worldwide leading experts in the exciting field of combined PET/MRI. Informative hands-on seminars, lively discussions and roundtables, and, last but not least, direct communication with other PET/MRI users alongside the official meeting program gave us the impression that combined PET/MRI made relevant progress over the last years.” The Leipzig PET/MR-Group, Germany Konstantin Nikolaou, MD Diagnostic & Interventional Radiology, Tübingen Christina Pfannenberg, MD PET/CT, Dept. of Radiology, Tübingen Preclinical Imaging & Radiopharmacy, Tübingen Holger Schmidt, PhD PET/MR, Dept. of Radiology, Tübingen SCIENTIFIC LECTURES (Block I&II) to be given by designated experts who cover a spectrum of topics ranging from imaging instrumentation, clinical protocols and translational research. For an update on invited speakers please visit www.pet-mrtuebingen.de. DIALOGUE BOARDS & ROUND-TABLE DISCISSION (Block II) to share experiences among clinicians and scientists with extensive competence in the field of PET/MRI. Each session is divided into 3-4 short presentations given by key experts and a subsequent discussion. INDUSTRY FORUM (Block I&II) to highlight recent commercial development in the field of hybrid imaging. Diagnostic & Interventional Radiology Klaus Scheffler, PhD TUTORIALS (Block I) to provide basic and advanced know-how to scientists / students in small, interactive groups. Topics: MRI (physical principles, T1, T2, T2* relaxation, contrast mechanisms, spatial encoding, sequence types, motion correction and functional imaging), PET (physical principles, detectors and detection methods, energy-, timing- and spatial resolution, sensitivity, data acquisition and processing), PET/MR (technology, correction methods and performance) and quantitative PET/MR (multi-parametric imaging and advanced image analyses). “The workshop in Tübingen offered an objective and comprehensive review of the current status of MRI/PET, sharing the results of a number of clinical studies and pointing to future needs. Furthermore, the intimate setting fostered much intellectually stimulating discussion. All together, it was a wonderful experience, mixing exciting, clinically relevant science and social interactions in a beautiful and congenial university environment.” Hedvig Hricak, MD, PhD, Chairman of the Department of Radiology, Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center, New York, USA Companion Program Tübingen has a long history and many interesting sights, which are worth a visit. We have prepared a book guide with the most famous and most important sights of Tübingen and its surroundings (www. pet-mr-tuebingen.de).
