While AI and Deep Learning have captured much attention, there is a common concern that deep learning is a ‘black box.’ In this webinar, we describe new research showing how the black box can be opened leading to an understanding of deep learning methods.

Learning Outcomes

After attending this session, participants will be able to:

  • Explain that deep learning methods are not necessarily ‘black boxes’.
  • Describe several different research techniques to extract the salient features of images used by deep learning methods to make their predictions.
  • Identify current challenges with these learning methods.


The American Roentgen Ray Society (ARRS) is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME) to provide continuing medical education activities for physicians.

The ARRS designates this live activity for a maximum of 1.00 AMA PRA Category 1 Credit(s). Physicians should claim only the credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity.

NM/MI Theragnotics – 68Ga DOTATATE PET/CT and 177Lu DOTATATE Therapy

68Ga DOTATATE PET/CT is the most sensitive imaging test available to detect somatostatin receptor (type 2) expressing tumors such as Gastro intestinal pancreatic neuroendocrine tumors (GEP NETs), bronchial carcinoids, paragangliomas, neuroblastomas, phaeochromocytomas and medullary thyroid cancers. Low and intermediate grade tumors tend to take up DOTATATE homogenously and avidly. 177Lu DOTATATE therapy is approved for treatment of patients with GEP NETs which are locally advanced or un-resectable and progressing despite somatostatin analogue therapy. This webinar will cover the interpretation of 68G DOTATATE PET/CT, pitfalls, mimics and principles and practice of 177Lu DOTATATE therapy.

A foundational review of 68Ga DOTATATE PET/CT and 177Lu DOTATATE therapy for practicing radiologists, nuclear medicine physicians, nuclear medicine technologists and residents is valuable to enhance the service to our patients, impact patient care and outcomes.

Learning Outcomes

After attending this session, participants will be able to:

  • Learn the normal distribution, pitfalls, mimics and imaging characteristics of various tumors of 68Ga DOTATATE PET/CT.
  • Understand the principles and practice of 177Lu DOTATATE therapy.
