We are Explorers in Radiochemical Space: Adventures in Radiochemistry, Artificial Intelligence and Radiotheranostics
Peter J. H. Scott, PhD
Associate Professor, Radiology Director, Division of Nuclear Medicine and Molecular Imaging Director, PET Chemistry Director, Center for Positron Emission Tomography, University of Michigan
With the emergence of theranostics and the expected impact of artificial intelligence on our work, it is an exciting time to be in the field of nuclear medicine. For 70 years, the Division of Nuclear Medicine at the University of Michigan has been developing radiopharmaceuticals for diagnostic imaging (e.g. positron emission tomography, PET), as well as radiotherapy, and translating them for clinical care. This presentation will give an overview of our work providing clinical care to the University Hospital, as well as both the clinical and basic research being conducted by our division today, including new methods for producing PET imaging agents, and the new radiopharmaceuticals being developed and translated at our academic medical center. The presentation will conclude imagining the future impact of Artificial Intelligence from bench-to-bedside.
