International Training School on “RADIONUCLIDE THERAPY AND THERANOSTICS”

Apr 4-8, 2022

Place Vienna, Austria
Date Apr 4-8, 2022
Duration 1 week (Mo-Fri)
Organizer IFAMP and Medical University of Vienna and IAEA

Target audience
Medical physicists, physician scientists, medical doctors, biomedical engineers

Objective
We will arrange also for local visits of the local Theranostics and Radiopharmacy unit, situation permitting.

Curriculum
This 5-day course will be a mix of presentations, Q&A sessions and hands-on. Faculty will be made of renown international and local experts.


Topics to be covered

  • Clinical nuclear medicine and theranostics
  • Patient dosimetry
  • Radiopharmacy
  • Radionuclides, radiopharmaceuticals and molecular targets
  • Quality control and regulatory aspects
  • Nuclear medicine imaging technologies
  • Radiation and radiobiological effects
  • Clinical case studies
  • Artificial intelligence
  • Reproducible science

Faculty

Our inter-/national faculty comes with deep knowledge in nuclear medicine, imaging and therapies, imaging physics and methodologies, data processing, radiochemistry and -pharmacy, regulatory affairs and sciences. Their lectures will be complemented by visits to local imaging and therapy facilities so as to combine theoretical and practice know-how.
