PET Basics Training course

Date: 2021-04-06 to 2021-04-08

Turku PET Centre, part of our Finnish Biomedical Imaging Node is organizing a remote training course on Position Emission Tomography (PET). This course, designed for physicians, scientists, PhD students and others, will be given in English and is free of charge. Registration closes on March 22nd.

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 course 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.
