EFOMP Special Interest Group on Radionuclide Internal Dosimetry (SIGFRID) webinar series

About SIGFRID

The objective of the Special Interest Group for Radionuclide Internal Dosimetry (SIG_FRID) is to establish a network of medical physicists working in radionuclide dosimetry. The SIG aims to fulfil the need for networking, education, research and professional exchanges in this field. The SIG_FRID was created in February 2021 and has a membership of 180 Medical Physicists (January 2024) specialised in this subfield.

The rationale of this SIG

Therapeutic applications in nuclear medicine are developing rapidly. They use a growing range of vectors (simple vector molecules, peptides, antibodies), medical devices (radiolabelled microspheres) and radioactive isotopes (beta, but also alpha or Auger). Due to this variety, the characterisation of the irradiation delivered to the patient is at the same time stimulating and challenging. Nevertheless, treatment planning and verification in nuclear medicine therapy, seldom performed in the past in radioiodine therapy for benign or malignant thyroid disease, is nowadays requested (implementation in national law of the Basic Safety Standard Council Directive EU 2013/59). Moreover, reliable absorbed dose calculations are now available thanks to technological and scientific developments of the last decades. More information about SIGFRID could be found via this link.

SIGFRID is oranising scientific meetings and case reports. A scientific meeting usually includes 3 x 30 min talks, followed by a general discussion (30 min) and a case report 30 min talk, followed by a general discussion (30 min).

Educational courses will complement the scientific meetings and case reports in 2024 - 2025. This initiative will cater profesionnals and students seeking to learn and expand their expertise in  nuclear medicine dosimetry.

Case reports are open to all, but Scientific meetings are restricted to SIG_FRID members.

EFOMP European & International Matters Committee webinar series

About European & International Matters Committee

About Early Career Special Interest Group 

The European & international Matters Committee is responsible to the Council of the Federation for the representation of the interest of the Federation to the various bodies across the European Union and beyond.

This year, the committee will organise a series of webinars together with the EFOMP Special Interest Group on Early Careers. We will pay special attention to topics related to the European Congress of Medical Physics 2024 (ECMP 2024)  (https://ecmp2024.org/), scientific, educational and professional. This series of webinars is intended to serve as a warm-up for the European Medical Physics Congress where our Early Carreer Group will have a specific track.
