We invite nuclear medicine physicians, radiologists, physicists, radiochemists, scientists, technologists and specialists to this landmark symposium; Intelligent Imaging Summit 2020 (II2020).

Friday 24 April, 2020,
Internatonal Convention Centre, Sydney

Precision medicine heralds a new era increasing the demands on imaging capabilities and at the same time creating exciting opportunities. While the medical imaging modalities are all central parts of the precision medicine landscape, it is essential that nuclear medicine and radiology professionals have a sound insight into radiomics, artificial intelligence and neural networks; and the role they play in precision medicine. One might assume this is an emerging area but it is an exciting domain that is already entrenched in imaging practices; from x-ray, nuclear medicine and ultrasound, through CT and SPECT to PET and MRI. Internationally, radiomics and artificial intelligence are regular streams at major conferences in nuclear medicine and radiology. This pre-conference symposium takes the form of an “Intelligent Imaging Summit”, the first of regular, to introduce, discuss and learn about the key principles and to allow this information to be used in a translational way to practitioners on the cutting-edge of imaging technology. At the same time, celebrating the pioneering role the imaging professions have had in build a culture around radiomics and artificial intelligence that has driven advances in precision medicine.
