The 2011 SNM annual meeting was held this year in Salt Lake City. Not the best venue for a meeting but the SNM has never been about location. Last year the meeting was a victim of the Swine Flu scare and attendance was down. This year attendance was about the same at least that was the take by most of the exhibitors I spoke with.
As I perused the exhibit hall there was the usual cadre of exhibitors. GE, Siemens and Philips were all showing their SPECT and PET hybrids. Interestingly the “Image of the Year was a SPECT/CT image from a group in Japan. This was different from the last several years when PET and PET/CT images were chosen.
