Letter of invitation
It is our pleasure to invite you for the International Workshop on bio-medical applications for micro-PET, which will be held at Centro Nacional de Aceleradores (CNA, Seville, Spain).
Presently, the CNA has a cyclotron in which PET nuclides (18F, 11C, 13N and 15O) are produced. The radio-pharmacy laboratories allow to produce radio-pharmaceuticals which are labelled with these nuclides. A Phillips mosaic Micro-PET, as well as a CT scanner, are used to obtain images of small animals. Recently, researchers in CNA have started to take full advantage of the facilities of the CNA, obtaining animal images with different radio-farmaceuticals. Next year, a PET-CT scanner for humans will be available, which will allow to perform clinical studies.
This International Workshop on bio-medical applications for micro-PET aims to promote worldwide scientific collaboration among scientists involved in various aspects of microPET applications. The scientific program of the workshop is broad-based, including different aspects of microPET are considered. Emphasis is on clinical applications studies.
The workshop will be held in Seville, Spain on September 20-21, 2010. The beautiful capital of Andalucía is especially suitable to make the participants feel its friendly atmosphere not only during the sessions but also during the time of relaxation.
