SNMMI and the Chinese Society of Nuclear Medicine partnered last month to hold the second Sino-American Conference with the aim of advancing a global partnership for nuclear medicine and molecular imaging. The meeting, held alongside SNMMI's Mid-Winter Meeting, discussed challenges in the field, including issues with reimbursement and the push to advance training of nuclear medicine technicians in China. "They are on a very steep slope of increasing PET and PET/CT capabilities in China," said SNMMI President Frederic Fahey. SNMMI is collaborating with the International Atomic Energy Agency on continuing education resources for CSNM. The growing partnership with China is helping SNMMI grow its global program, which now involves 13 international groups.
