Advances in Oncology and Imaging Needs (#4361)

S. M. Larson1

1 Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, News York City, New York, United States of America


I will present an overview of recent advances in oncology and the demands they are placing on molecular imaging in the clinic. I will highlight the fast pace of advances in nuclear medicine that match with the development of new therapies in oncology: targeted drugs, immunotherapy, and external beam radiation innovations. Fusion imaging, SPECT and PET in combination with CT and MRI, have made a huge impact in the last 5 years, and have reshaped our training programs and clinical practice. The rise of theranostics, that is radiotracers that serve both a diagnostic and a therapeutic purpose, will also be an crucial part of patient care in oncology in the near term future.
