This year, the EANM and Springer again bestow the EJNMMI Awards for outstanding articles published across the whole journal family during the EANM Annual Congress.

The European Journal of Nuclear Medicine and Molecular Imaging (EJNMMI) is the official journal of the EANM, dedicated to the exchange of clinical and scientific information for the nuclear medicine community and allied professions involved in the functional, metabolic and molecular investigation of disease.

Therefore, do not hesitate and submit your abstract(s) to EANM’22 now and maybe you will be one of the winners in the next year.


We congratulate this years winners:
