Discover the domain of radiotheranostics in nuclear oncology that is already implemented in clinical routine, and deepen your knowledge of the research and development of these new therapies.
This webinar aims to offer insights and instruction on current radiotheranostics in nuclear medicine and especially in oncology, that are already implemented in clinical routine. The event will allow participants to hear from high-level experts from CIVIS partner universities about the main aspects of radiotheranostics. It will offer an excellent opportunity for contacts and exchanges between students, academics, clinicians, and researchers from CIVIS universities.
Main topics addressed
- Session 1. Radiopharmaceuticals for targeted radionuclide therapy
- Session 2. Radiobiology
- Session 3. Medical physics dosimetry in nuclear medicine
- Session 4. Radiotheranostic in clinics
- Session 5. Example of radioembolization
- Session 6. Bottleneck and pending questions
- Understanding the concept of radiotheranostics, their mechanism of action, the principles of radiobiology applied to radiotheranostics, the principles of dosimetry with practical examples, and knowing the major clinical applications that have demonstrated their effectiveness and safety in landmark clinical trials
- Contact and exchange opportunities with academics/clinicians/researchers from CIVIS universities
- Contact opportunity with students from CIVIS universities

- Bruno Vanderlinden (Université libre de Bruxelles) - Bruno Vanderlinden is a medical physicist expert since 2004. He works in the nuclear medicine department of Institut Jules Bordet. The department has developed a collaboration from the beginning with Prof Buvat to standardize PET/CT quantification. Hepatic radioembolization started in 2004 in our nuclear medicine department. Optimization of this radionuclide therapy based on dosimetry from FDG-PET/CT and MAA-SPECT/CT images has been undertaken from the beginning. Many other research works concerning dosimetry in the field of radiotheranostics have been and are being carried out in our department. The nuclear medicine department of the Institut Jules Bordet uses today in clinical routine many radiotracer couples dedicated to radiotheranostics: (89)Zr-rituximab/(90)Y-rituximab in 2010, (68)GA-DOTATATE/(177)Lu-DOTATATE and recently (68)GA-PSMA/(177)Lu-PSMA.
