NANETS Monthly Virtual Programming Series: NANETS & SNMMI: Radioligand Therapy and Treatment Sequencing for Metastatic and Unresectable Pheochromocytomas and Paragangliomas

Presented in collaboration by the Society of Nuclear Medicine and Molecular Imaging (SNMMI)


Radioligand therapy, which delivers radiation to specifically targeted cancer cells, has been shown to improve quality of life and perhaps survival for many people with neuroendocrine cancers. This case-based session will explore where in the patients’ journey it is most appropriate to consider the use ofmIBG therapy, in the context of other available and standard therapies for metastatic and unresectable pheochromocytomas and paragangliomas. We will review the role of functional imaging as well as the importance of peri-treatment blockade

The CMEsolutions is accredited by the ACCME to provide continuing medical education for physicians.

The CMEsolutions designates this enduring material for a maximum of 1 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™.  Physicians should claim only the credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity.

Successful completion of this CME activity, which includes participation in the evaluation component and 75% passing on MOC test, enables the participant to earn up to 1 Medical Knowledge MOC points in the American Board of Internal Medicine's (ABIM) Maintenance of Certification (MOC) program. It is the CME activity provider’s responsibility to submit participant completion information to ACCME for the purpose of granting ABIM MOC credit.

The Society of Nuclear Medicine and Molecular Imaging Technologist Section (SNMMI-TS), through its Verification of Involvement in Continuing Education (VOICE) program, has approved this webinar for 1.0 continuing education hour (CEHs) of Category A+ credit. VOICE-approved credit is recognized by most licensure states and by the NMTCB and ARRT (as Category A and A+ credit). In order to receive CE credit, technologists must complete the online assessment and evaluation available after the program.
