Program Objectives
The SNM 2012 Annual Meeting will provide an in-depth review of molecular imaging technologies, clinical applications, and translational and advanced research topics for molecular imaging professionals – nuclear medicine physicians, scientists, radiologists, cardiologists, pharmacists, technologists, researchers, and others involved and interested in nuclear medicine and molecular imaging and therapy.

By attending the SNM 2012 Annual Meeting, participants will be able to:

  • Examine and evaluate future directions in nuclear medicine, molecular imaging and therapy from a research and clinical perspective.
  • Describe the latest indications and applications of hybrid imaging and its impact on patient management.
  • Review standard, new, and relevant advances in molecular imaging including applications in oncology, cardiology, and neurology.
  • Discuss new therapeutic and diagnostic agents that are impacting the practice of nuclear medicine and molecular imaging.
  • Identify content that would be applicable to practice improvement.


SNM is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME) to sponsor continuing medical education for physicians.

SNM designates this live activity for a maximum of 42.0 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™. Physicians should only claim credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity.


The Society of Nuclear Medicine, Inc. (SNM) is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Pharmacy Education (ACPE) as a provider of continuing pharmacy education.

This activity has been designated knowledge-based CPE.

The assigned universal program numbers for this meeting begin with 0210-0000-12-034-L04-P and end with 0210-0000-12-244-L04-P. Topic designations and descriptions are as follows: L01-P=Drug Therapy-Related Topics, L03-P= Law-Related Topics and L04-P=General Pharmacy Topics. Total available credits for pharmacists are 42.0* hours or 4.20 CEUs.

Courses appropriate for pharmacist participation will be designated by an ACPE universal program number ending in the letter “P.”

Mentored CT Case Review Documentation

As well as obtaining CME credits, physicians attending the CT Case Review sessions will be offered documentation that shows they participated in mentored cases for the number of cases actually completed during the sessions.

Self-Assessment Module (SAM) Credits

In addition to CME credits, physician attendees will have the opportunity to earn SAM credits. Physicians must attend the entire session to earn SAM credits.

The following sessions have submitted presentations to the American Board of Nuclear Medicine (ABNM) for SAM qualification. A final list of SAM sessions is available at the Education Booth.
