Diagnostics and therapy in prostate cancer were hot topics at EANM meeting

The European Association of Nuclear Medicine returned to Barcelona in October for its annual meeting, and the UK was well represented by delegates and suppliers.

This meeting attracted good delegate numbers and was an ideal opportunity to find out about new developments, especially in tracers and therapy. According to the organisers 6,904 people from around the world participated in the conference.

Barcelona has many attractions as a conference destination, not least its accessibility, affordability and that it is warm and sunny in October.

The meeting is now predominantly a PET meeting with therapy a growing segment and scintigraphy less evident, while diagnostics and therapy for prostate cancer were the hot topics.

One thing no organiser can plan for is civil unrest and it was reported that disturbances surrounding issues of Catalan independence affected the homeward journeys of some delegates.
