Convenors Invitation

Welcome to the meeting website for 46th Scientific Meeting of the ANZSNM to be held in Rotorua from the 22 – 25 April 2016

We are putting together a program that will provide both professional development in core nuclear medicine and present new developments in molecular imaging. The scientific program has been designed to present the latest findings in Australasian research and to engage participants in practical workshops that have broad appeal. The invited speakers will focus on the theme: “Hot Science: An Eruption of Isotopes” and a subtheme on quantitative nuclear medicine, delivering evolving ideas on the science and clinical application of new isotopes and radiopharmaceuticals.

The Pre-Conference Symposium is titled “Not just numbers: the evolution of quantitative nuclear medicine” and will be a multi-disciplinary meeting focusing on a number of aspects of this theme. The symposium will be held in Taupo with its magnificent backdrop of the largest lake in New Zealand that is overlooked by three mountains. This symposium is not for the faint-hearted. It is a day of serious science balanced with serious recreation that only this region can provide. On the way back to Rotorua we will stop off for a very special nature walk through “Craters of the Moon” which delivers an up-close encounter with geothermal activity.
