2017 ACNM Resident Abstract Awards

The Program Committee of the American College of Nuclear Medicine invited the submission of original abstracts for the 2017 Annual Meeting, held January 19-22 in Phoenix, AZ. Over 70 abstracts from young professionals (physicians or scientists in training, or in practice within 10 years of graduation) were submitted on aspects of clinical and basic science in nuclear medicine, correlative imaging in radiology, nuclear cardiology and radiation oncology. Accepted abstracts were presented in both oral and poster format.

The ACNM is pleased to offer several abstract awards this year:
•    The Ursula Mary Kocemba-Slosky, Ph.D., awards for the Best ACNM Nuclear Medicine Research Abstracts presented by NM Residents at the ACNM Annual Meeting.
