PET Basics Course - Turku PET Centre

Date: 2024-04-08 to 2024-04-10

Positron emission tomography (PET) is non-invasive and quantitative imaging modality using molecules labelled with positron-emitting radioisotopes in tracer quantities (i.e. without pharmacological effect) to visualize and measure rates of biochemical processes (e.g. enzyme reactions, ligand-receptor interactions, cellular metabolism, cell proliferation, gene expression) in tissues of living subjects. Therefore, PET is an important tool to elucidate mechanisms associated with diseases and drug actions. The PET Basics Course organised by the Turku PET Centre, part of our Finnish Biomedical Imaging Node, aims to provide students with a broad and general introduction to the PET imaging. The main purpose of this course is to enable students to understand the interdisciplinary nature of PET imaging. After the course one should have basic knowledge of the PET imaging field of its physics, radiochemistry, and data analysis, research and clinical applications. 

The course is free and takes place in person or by Zoom. Physicians, scientists, PhD students, and all interested in PET are welcome to attend!

Dates: April 8-10, 2024
