I am particularly pleased to see so many examples of companies reaching out to their communities and engaging with employees – after all, medtech is really about people rather than technology.

Demystifying nuclear medicine

Press trip offers journalists insights on the latest in PET/MRI technology

Medical imaging plays a vital role in diagnosing and managing diseases such as cancer. By giving clinicians a clear picture of the body’s organs – and of cancerous tumours – nuclear medicine guides treatment decisions that can be the difference between life and death.

While MRI, CT and PET scans are becoming increasingly familiar to patients and the wider public, few understand the technical work behind these machines. SNITEM, the French association of medical devices, arranged a press trip for journalists on 5 June to help deepen their understanding of innovation in this fast-moving field.

Participants visited the Henri Mondor University Hospital in Créteil where they had a chance to follow the life of a radiotracer, from production to use in imaging. They were introduced to the latest PET/MRI hybrid imaging platform – of which there are only two in France – and given the opportunity to discuss its role in oncology patients with leading experts. They then went to the Siemens Healthineers radioactive isotope production centre to learn more about the challenges of working with radioactive isotopes.

More than a dozen journalists from national newspapers took part in this unique trip to the heart of nuclear medicine – potentially bringing this fascinating story of innovation to a much larger audience.
