Learning Objectives

  • to learn the principles of guiding clinical therapy with hybrid medical imaging
  • to learn the key clinical questions at different points in the patient’s journey
  • to understand the indications, limitations and comparative merits of each part in hybrid medical imaging in a wide range of oncologic and non-oncologic conditions, including prostate cancer, breast cancer, cardiac diseases, neurodegeneration as well as inflammation and infection.
  • to appreciate the complementary roles of structural and functional/molecular imaging in cancer management
  • to understand how information derived from imaging guides patient selection for treatment and supports individualised treatment planning
  • to learn about new horizons for hybrid imaging, such as full body PET/CT, novel tracers and artificial intelligence in hybrid imaging


Guiding clinical therapy with hybrid imaging
The four sessions of CHILI will cover various aspects relating to the fusion of radiology and nuclear medicine. The first three sessions are dedicated to exploring ways to guide clinical therapy with the use of hybrid imaging. Each of the lectures will be illustrated practically by a case review.

The conference will conclude with a session dedicated to new developments that are on the horizon for hybrid imaging, such as the great leap for full body PET/CT, novel tracers and a lecture on how to evolve clinical applications for artificial intelligence in hybrid imaging.

Please note that the programme is still subject to change.
