ESHIMT is a non-profit organization dedicated to promoting and coordinating the scientific, intellectual and professional activities of individuals working in the following areas: hybrid imaging incorporating two or more imaging modalities, imaging of tissue function, and imaging at cellular and molecular levels.

The mission of the society is to develop clinically relevant imaging probes and technologies and translate them from bench to bedside to help improve patient care. This will be achieved through training, education and research.

ESHIMT is open to anybody working in these areas of imaging including: physicians, scientists, physicists, technologists, radiographers, and others. ESHIMT will foster specific educational and training programmes to evolve and disseminate knowledge about these new areas of imaging in the medical community across Europe and the world.
