The 4th edition of the Nuclear Technologies for Health Symposium (NTHS) was held in Nantes on 13 and 14 February, organised by LabEx IRON in partnership with SIRIC ILIAD and IRC TransForMed.

A key international event for those involved in nuclear medicine, these two days of scientific exchanges were marked by the significant participation of young researchers and clinicians who came to present their work in the fields of radiomics and artificial intelligence, targeted radionuclide therapy, PET imaging in neurology and innovative radiopharmaceuticals.
