The aim of the course is to discuss basic physics in radionuclide imaging and the principle of tracers in nuclear medicine
The objectives are to recall and differentiate between the ideal characteristics of various radionuclides for diagnosis and for therapy. To discuss the common uses and limitations of the nuclear medicine modalities: rectilinear scanners, gamma cameras, positron emission tomography (PET) systems, single photon emission computed tomography (SPECT) systems, and newer technology systems such as PET/CT systems, Technetium generator and radiopharmaceuticals.
