Dr. Gérard Bischof receives prestigious Image of the Year Award

Every year, the Society of Nuclear Medicine and Molecular Imaging chooses an image that exemplifies the most promising advances in the field in order to detect diseases, aid diagnosis or select appropriate treatment strategies for patients. For this year’s annual meeting held in San Diego, the reviewers had to vote from 2200 submitted abstracts. We are happy and proud to announce that this year’s Image of the Year award goes to our dear member Dr. Gérard Bischof for his work entitled: “Novel PET imaging demonstrates relationship between Tau bildup and neurodegeneration in Alzheimer’s patients.”
