Mark T. Madsen, PhD, receives SNMMI International Abstract Award

Mark T. Madsen, PhD

The Society of Nuclear Medicine and Molecular Imaging (SNMMI) recently recognized Mark T. Madsen, PhD, for having the best scored abstract submitted from the United States at the SNMMI Annual Meeting held in Denver, Colorado.  Dr. Madsen is a Professor of Radiology in the Division of Nuclear Medicine.

Single Time Point Dose Estimate for Bi-Exponential Clearance 
When radionuclide therapy is performed, it is desirable to measure the radiation dose to critical organs in order to determine how much radioactivity can be safely administered.   This typically requires doing imaging studies over 4 or more days, which is a big burden to both patients and the clinic.  This abstract demonstrates how it is possible to accomplish the dose estimate with a single measurement.  This work was supported in part by NIH grant 5R01EB004987, M. Sue O’Dorisio and Yusuf Menda (PIs).

Scientific abstracts from over 60 countries are submitted to the SNMMI Annual Meeting each year, and for the last three years, SNMMI has awarded an International Best Abstract Award to one recipient from each representing country.  This is the 2nd year in a row that Dr. Madsen has received this high honor for abstracts submitted from the United States.  Dr. Madsen was honored at a reception on June 11th, along with other winners across the globe, to celebrate the outstanding work of these scientists to improve the effectiveness of nuclear medicine and molecular imaging in the diagnosis and treatment of patients.
