      EMIM 2015 Educational Sessions

      Focus on Study Groups!

      The four educational sessions were organized by four of the six ESMI Study Groups:

      • Molecular Neuroimaging: From pretty colors to hard numbers
      • Hyperpolarized Magnetic Resonance
      • Image-Guided Drug Delivery
      • Current and Future Strategies for Theranostic Multimodality Intraoperative Imaging

      The Mass Spectrometry and Standardization Study Groups organized educational sessions in 2014/15. All study groups held a study group meeting in Utrecht.

      Contributing partner societies

      We are happy about the ESMI's long-term co-operation with the European Society for Radiology – ESR, the European Society of Molecular and Functional Imaging in Radiology - ESMOFIR, and the European Association for Nuclear Medicine – EANM and the European Microscopy Society - EMS! They contributed to the EMIM 2016 programme by organizing "Best of" focus sessions - THANKS a lot!
