The Western Region Society of Nuclear Medicine’s Annual Meeting will be held November 3-5, 2017 at the Westin Bayshore in Vancouver, British Columbia. This meeting is always well received by the attendees and is a highlight of the SNMMI calendar for the Western States. Lectures are targeted for physicians, physicists, technologists and pharmacists.
The submission site for abstracts for the 2017 Western Region meeting will be open in the spring. 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.
