Proceedings of the 3rd PSMR Conference on PET/MR and SPECT/MR

The contributions of the present European Journal of Nuclear Medicine and Molecular Imaging Physics Proceedings issue “PSMR2014 – 3rd International Conference on PET-MR and SPECT-MR” give a representative overview of oral and poster presentations at the third Conference on PET-MR and SPECT-MR. PSMR2014 took place in Kos Island (Greece) in May 19–21 and was organized in cooperation of the Technological Educational Institute of Athens, the Pisa University-INFN, the Forschungszentrum Juelich GmbH and the COST Action PET-MRI TD-1007.

COST is an intergovernmental framework for European Cooperation in Science and Technology, allowing the coordination of nationally-funded research on a European level. The COST Action TD1007: “Bimodal PET-MRI molecular imaging technologies and applications for in vivo monitoring of disease and biological processes”, was founded by COST Office in 2011 and aims to provide a framework for collaboration between European institutions that have significant experience and research activity in scientific fields that are complementary for PET/MRI research.

Like the PSMR2012 and PSMR2013, PSMR2014 covered all technological aspects and applications of PET/MR and SPECT/MR systems. The sessions entitled Advances in MR-PET instrumentation; Advances in MR-PET software and quantification; Whole-body MR-PET; Dedicate organ MR-PET; Advances in MR-SPET; Bimodal tracers and Preclinical MR-PET applications. In addition, latest industrial developments were reported in a dedicated industrial session. The keynote lecture was given by Prof. Andrew Maudsley (USA) on “MR Spectroscopy”. There were 55 oral and 55 poster contributions. More than 180 registered participants – physicists, engineers, radiochemists, technologists and physicians – enjoyed the program comprising all the different aspects of the new bimodal imaging modalities and the lively discussions following the presentations and during the breaks.
