ACNM Resident Abstract Awards

The Program Committee of the American College of Nuclear Medicine invited the submission of original abstracts for the 2018 Annual Meeting, held in January in Orlando, FL. 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.
