Nuclear Medicine
 • SPECT • PET  • Radionuclide Therapy    

SPEAKER: Mr S Somanesan  
Senior Principal Radiation Physicist 
Department of Nuclear Medicine and PET 
Singapore General Hospital
Society of Medical Physicists (Singapore)

This session will cover radiopharmaceuticals, radionuclide imaging and radionuclide therapy. Participants will be given insights into various aspects of radiopharmaceuticals, including their production and use in nuclear medicine and Positron Emission Tomography (PET) imaging; the production of radionuclides (for instance, Tc-99m, labelled radiopharmaceuticals and F-18 FDG); and radionuclide imaging with different modalities (for instance, gamma camera, SPECT/CT, PET/CT & PET/MR). Participants will also gain a better understanding of the use of radionuclide therapy (for instance, Y-90 Therapy, I-131 Therapy, Lu-177 PRRT and I-MIBG) to treat human diseases.
