Interview with ESHIᴹᵀ President Thomas Beyer on going hybrid
How is hybrid imaging faring across Europe, and are ongoing turf battles between radiology and nuclear medicine getting resolved?
Philipp Ward from AuntMinnie talked to Thomas Beyer, PhD, MBA, to reflect on these issues and on his first year as president of the European Society for Hybrid, Molecular and Translation Imaging (ESHIᴹᵀ), as well as the next 12 months ahead.
Integrated, interdisciplinary PET/CT reporting is not implemented ubiquitously. Training programmes and qualification options in hybrid imaging are limited in Europe.
Further harmonisation of operation and training in hybrid imaging is necessary on a European, regional and institutional level in order to ensure high clinical quality and to strengthen the clinical role of hybrid imaging.

Among many applicants, Dr. Mahmoud Rezk was chosen as our first hybrid imaging fellow in 2018. He was granted a 3-months-fellowship at Umea University (Sweden).
