Submitted by sixth form student Portia Smith
Apparently, I’m the youngest person ever to present at a BNMS conference. I’m in my first year of sixth form college, and have just presented a poster at the Spring Meeting, 2017. Thanks to the nuclear medicine department at the Royal Sussex County Hospital, led by Dr Sabina Dizdarevic, I had the opportunity to raise awareness for Tc-99m-MIBI accumulation in axillary apocrine sweat glands. In this region, high sudation levels can mimic lymphadenopathy in patients with parathyroid adenoma and malignancy, potentially prompting unnecessary intervention or surgery.

The 45th Annual Spring Meeting of the British Nuclear Medicine Society (BNMS) took place on 20th - 22nd May 2017. The event was hosted at the International Convention Centre (ICC), Birmingham, for the 2nd year in a row with over 450 delegates attending over the 3 days.
The meeting provided a knowledge update for all those involved in Nuclear Medicine including clinicians, clinical scientists, radiopharmacists, radiographers, technologists and nurses, with a specific focus on UK practice. The large and impressive exhibition hall at the ICC provided a good environment for networking and interfacing with colleagues from industry with 28 exhibitors in attendance this year. There were over 60 invited speakers, with Professor Irene Virgolini, of the Medical University of Innsbruck, Austria, delivering this year’s annual lecture on ‘Radionuclide Theranostics in Prostate Cancer’.
The next scheduled BNMS meeting is the Autumn Meeting on 15th September 2017, in Liverpool.
