Knowledge Bowl Organized by the SNMMI Early Career Professionals Committee


This newly expanded version of the always popular Knowledge Bowl will now be an unopposed general session on Sunday morning following the Plenary. This fun and informative game pits teams against each other to determine which team is the most knowledgeable of the Knowledge Bowl contestants. Teams will be challenged with a variety of questions and cases that will test their grey matter! If you are interested in being considered in the “team draft” to be added to a team, please complete the interest form. If you can’t be on a team this year, you are invited to join the audience and answer the questions through the Quizizz app, while cheering on your favorite team.

New features include:

  • Recruiting is underway to form teams of 10 individuals to include at least one of the following:
    • Physician
    • Radiopharmacist or Radiochemist
    • Physicist
    • Technologist
    • Someone with >25 years of experience in NM
    • Early career professional
    • International participant
  • An expert panel of “Past Presidents” to tell you why your answers are right or wrong—because they think they know!
  • Prizes (and bragging rights) for the winning teams!
