The International Symposium on Dosimetry and Molecular Radiotherapy (Do.MoRe) has taken place during the Annual Congress of the European Association of Nuclear Medicine for five consecutive years. It resulted from a series of interesting and important radiopharmaceutical and dosimetry symposia held from 1970 onwards and then continued at the 2004 EANM Congress and the 2009 SNM Congress. These symposia were formerly known as ISTARD (the International Symposium on Targeted Radiotherapy and Radiopharmaceutical Dosimetry). Since 2015, the symposia have been organised annually in parallel with the EANM Congress and the name was changed to Do.MoRe in order to emphasise the importance of dosimetry.
In 2020, it was decided together with the chairs of the committees involved to reorganize this separate track within the EANM Congress. The aim of this reorganization is to bring together all of the disciplines concerned with physics, dosimetry and radiobiology and to provide attendees with the most cutting edge innovations in these fields. Medical physics is a complex specialty which covers a broad range of areas ranging from the development of new detectors/imaging equipment to image reconstruction and quantification, dosimetry, tracer kinetics, radiobiology and radiation protection. Today’s new challenges include the integration of Artificial Intelligence (AI) into most of these technical areas as well as its eventual implementation in clinical practice. Therefore, we decided to rename this track and give priority to the presentation of the most innovative aspects of all of these disciplines. In addition, one major objective is to enhance the interaction between all of these disciplines given their prominent role within the field of nuclear medicine by promoting a deeper interdisciplinary scientific discussion. Consequently, there will be more featured sessions which combine guest speakers and paper presentations and which involve clinical contributors.
The Cutting Edge Science Track will contain not only various CME Sessions such as “AI in Radiomics”or “Developments and Challenges in Theranostics”, but also many Featured sessions (combining guest speakers and paper presentations) and TROP session (pure proffered paper sessions). In addition, some Pre-Congress Symposia, namely with “Total Body PET”or “Biokinetic Modelling in Cancer Therapy and Clinical Impact” have been planned as well.
The EANM Committees of Dosimetry, Physics, and Radiation Protection will coordinate the scientific programme for the meeting jointly with the support of the Congress Chair.
We are looking forward to welcoming you to EANM’21. Be part of it!
