The Brain Imaging workshop is in the works.
Syntermed is ready to show the latest tools to help position your practice for success.
NeuroQ provides ultimate confidence in the differential diagnosis of dementia, which makes a major impact on dementia therapy.
The latest NeuroQ version uses the standardized region of interest (ROI) method to analyze SPECT data.
The NeuroQ method for regional quantification of PET scans has been FDA-cleared for analysis of both FDG and amyloid imaging data.
Dr. Dan Silverman, MD, PhD
Head, Neuronuclear Imaging Section
Ahmanson Translational Imaging Division
Director, Brain Wellness and PET Consultation Services
Professor, Department of Molecular and Medical Pharmacology
Executive Committee, UCLA Alzheimer's Disease Research Center
David Geffen School of Medicine, University of California, Los Angeles
Dr. Silverman is Head of the Neuronuclear Imaging Section of the Ahmanson Translational Imaging Division at University of California, Los Angeles. He also serves as Professor in the Department of Molecular and Medical Pharmacology, and on the Executive Committee of the UCLA Alzheimer’s Disease Center. Dr. Silverman obtained his PhD in Biological Chemistry at Harvard University, and completed postdoctoral research training in Biological Chemistry and Molecular Pharmacology at Harvard Medical School. He received his MD from The Ohio State University College of Medicine, and subsequently completed post-MD training at UCLA, before being board-certified by both the American Board of Internal Medicine and the American Board of Nuclear Medicine. Dr. Silverman’s main research areas involve: 1) neuronuclear imaging, especially to explore cognitive function and dysfunction, associated with factors such as Alzheimer’s and other neurodegenerative diseases, cancer and chemotherapy, exogenous or endogenous hormonal status, and mood; and 2) the evaluation and management of neoplastic disease (especially breast cancer and lymphoma).
Participants will gain an understanding of the basic aspects of NeuroPET methodology, clinical applications of PET and how these approaches can contribute to overall patient management. A demonstration and update of NeuroQ will also be given, including several case studies using NeuroQ. If you are currently performing brain PET studies, or considering doing so, this is a unique opportunity to learn from one of the leading experts for Brain Imaging.

Expert PET Consult Service.
Syntermed along with UCLA provides a PET consult service where customers can send the difficult studies to Dr. Silverman and he will provide a consultation with a report on his interpretation of the study. Many of our current customers have used this service and they are very impressed with the high level of interpretive skills Dr. Silverman offers for interpreting brain PET studies. Through this process they gradually increase their level of interpretive skills and their need for the consultation service is reduced as their skills improve. There is a fee associated with this service.
