140X – Current and Future Challenges and Opportunities in Nuclear Medicine

Thursday, March 26th
10:45am12:15pm

About the Session

Novel nuclear medicine therapies require planning for facilities, operations, infrastructure, budgets, expert staffing and complex logistics. This seminar will show how appropriate planning can be done and success can be achieved. Faculty will share how offering advanced nuclear medicine diagnostic and therapeutics will offer a prestige advantage, an added value in indirect revenue from ancillary care as well as patient retention (versus referral to a tertiary center).

The seminar will offer results of a survey of hospital administrators and their perceptions of and attitudes toward the role of nuclear medicine within their facilities. You will also hear insights about how to start a nuclear medicine therapy program, including logistics, infrastructure, operations and revenue generation. Faculty also will share insights into reimbursement; avenues for indirect revenue generation; how amyloid imaging may become a real driver in the care for patients with dementia; and overall challenges and opportunities in the delivery and economics of nuclear medicine. You will also hear information about the safety of nuclear medicine, technology and information management and workforce needs.

Learning Objectives:

  • Review the newer, recently approved diagnostic radiopharmaceuticals and their overarching applications and business implications.
  • Discover how to set up a nuclear medicine therapy program.
