Do.MoRe Track

The 10th International Symposium on DOsimetry and MOlecular Radiotherapy (Do.MoRe) will take place during the 32nd Annual Congress of the European Association of Nuclear Medicine in Barcelona, Spain, October 12–16, 2019.

 

The 10th International Symposium on DOsimetry and MOlecular Radiotherapy (Do.MoRe) will take place during the 32nd Annual Congress of the European Association of Nuclear Medicine in Barcelona, Spain, October 12–16, 2019.

The format of the dosimetry and therapy meeting has evolved from a series of interesting and important radiopharmaceutical and dosimetry symposia held approximately every 5 years since 1970. This series was continued at the EANM Congress 2004 (Helsinki) and the SNM Congress 2009 (Toronto). These symposia were formerly known as ISTARD: “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 has been changed to Do.MoRe, emphasising both the importance of dosimetry and the more regular organisation.

As a separate track within the EANM Congress, Do.MoRe will aim to bring together all disciplines concerned with radiopharmaceutical dosimetry, physics, radiobiology and molecular radiotherapy, stimulating interdisciplinary scientific discussion. Dosimetry is acquiring a more prominent role with respect to not only nuclear medicine therapy but also radiation protection in nuclear medicine procedures. This year Do.MoRe will promote clinical application of dosimetry, both in a CME and a pitfalls & artefact session. Symposia are held on translation of pre-clinical radiobiology into clinical practice and on the recently published ICRP report Radiological Protection in Therapy with Radiopharmaceuticals.

As a prelude to Do.MoRe, pre-symposia are organised on advances in image processing and also therapy specific image reconstruction and segmentation (including deep learning) methods. Another interesting pre-symposium will give an overview of the various projects on clinical implementation of dosimetry in molecular radiotherapy and initiatives to develop accreditation/calibration methods for quantitative SPECT. A joint symposium with AAPM will be organized on linking imaging and pathology results in interventional nuclear medicine. This 10th anniversary will be celebrated a real physics and dosimetry multi-session party.

The EANM Dosimetry, Radiation Protection, Physics and Thyroid Committees will coordinate the scientific programme for the meeting jointly. All organisational matters will be handled by the EANM Executive Office.

A call for abstracts will go out in the coming months. The deadline for abstract submission is April 25, and authors will be notified about abstract acceptance on June 19, 2019.

We look forward to welcoming you in Barcelona in October 2019, be part of it!
