The Western Region Society of Nuclear Medicine’s Annual Meeting will be held October 20-23, 2016 at the Sheraton Park Hotel at the Anaheim Resort in Anaheim, California. This meeting is always well received by the attendees and is a highlight of the SNM calendar for the Western States. Program Chairs, Lalitha Ramanna, MD and Ed Glass, MD, both from Little Company of Mary Hospital in Los Angeles, and Trish Peter from the Cancer Center of Santa Barbara Sansum Clinic in Santa Barbara and their committee of physicians and technologists from the Pacific Southwest Chapter, have organized a particularly thoughtful program with many interesting and timely topics. Lectures are targeted for physicians, physicists, technologists and pharmacists.
The Western Region is currently accepting abstracts for the 2016 meeting. The Program Committee invites contributions in nuclear medicine from both members and nonmembers of the SNMMI. However, only members may receive awards. The Western Region presents a total of $1500 in Awards. A $500 award will be presented to the author of the most outstanding oral abstract in each of three categories:
- MD or Scientist
- Individual in Training in the field of Nuclear Medicine & Molecular Imaging
(technologist, resident, intern, medical student)
The presenting author will receive complimentary registration for the meeting. Other abstracts of high scientific merit that cannot be presented orally but would present well in visual format will be accepted for poster presentation. Poster presenters must pay the meeting registration fee. Posters presented at other meetings may be accepted.
