RSNA 2010 - Dr. Hedvig Hricak calls for a new Molecular Imaging Specialty

(DIAGNOSTIC IMAGING) -- Hricak calls for new MI subspecialty Dr. Hedvig Hricak used her presidential address before the opening session of the 2010 RSNA meeting to call for a new molecular imaging subspecialty while cautioning radiologists that MI is not appropriate for all clinical settings. “We need a new breed of physicians with training in nuclear medicine, diagnostic radiology, radiochemistry, and molecular biology, which today is in nobody’s curriculum,” she told a full house in the Arie Crown Theater at McCormick Place in Chicago. The requirements of the new subspecialty would include proficiency in PET/CT, MRI/PET, and optical imaging and expertise with new PET tracers.
