“Accepted”: An Open Source Solution for teaching under COVID

Our original paper on using a freeware client-server PET/CT viewer for teaching while students were locked out from the university campus has been accepted by the “Nuklearmedizin/NuclearMedicine” journal (impact factor 1.2 in 2018):
Biermann M, Kanoun S, Davidsen T, Gray RJr. An Open Source Solution for “Hands-on” teaching of PET/CT to Medical Students under the COVID-19 Pandemic. Nuklearmedizin. 2020 (accepted).

Thanks to the excellent input from the co-authors, there was only 1 minor revision in which the first of two reviewers asked for some clarifications.

Let’s hope the ePub comes out soon.
