SNM forms molecular imaging speakers bureau
SNM has launched Inside MI, a free resource that provides molecular imaging experts as speakers on diverse topics for those in the medical community and patient groups.

“This is an exciting and vital resource, given that molecular imaging is rapidly evolving and may revolutionize patient care by integrating information about location, structure, function and biology, thus leading to a package of noninvasive imaging tools with enormous potential for improving healthcare,” according to Alexander McEwan, SNM president. 

While Inside MI builds on the current SNM speaker program, McEwan said the society is looking for both SNM members and nonmembers to submit speaker proposals, which will be evaluated based on proposed topics and areas of interest expressed by the medical community and the public.

The society is looking for individuals with expertise in multimodality imaging; instrumentation and data analysis; optical imaging; ultrasound; MRI/MRS; biomarkers; gene/cell therapy; small animal imaging; infection/inflammation; radiochemistry; non-radioactive molecular imaging agents; contrast agents; and cardiology, neurology or oncology, according to McEwan.

SNM said that Inside MI, funded by the society’s Bench to Bedside campaign, will cover both travel expenses and honoraria for speakers.
