Expanding the reach of nuclear medicine with ISOL (isotope separation online) radioisotopes
by Thomas Cocolios
As part of the 2021 lecture series in the framework of the 'Chair Roger Van Geen' Thomas Cocolios talks about how the radioisotopes generated by the isotope separation online (ISOL) technique present novel opportunities for nuclear medicine. The lecture covers the basics of nuclear medicine, covering different molecular imaging techniques as well as Targeted RadioNuclide Therapy (TRNT) (3:47 - 29:02), it then explains theranostics and illustrates its opportunities with novel radioisotopes through the example of Terbium (29:02 - 1:05:45). The last part covers how the ISOL technique is used to produce novel radioisotopes in Europe to expand the theranostics market in CERN MEDICIS, Tb-IRMA-V and PRISMAP (1:05:49 - end).
