Radiopharmaceutical Therapy Course Description

Radiopharmaceuticals are an increasingly utilized therapeutic option for the treatment of malignancies. This course focuses on clinical indications, difficult cases, medical physics considerations, development of standard operating procedures for clinical implementation and billing and troubleshooting theranostic delivery. Specifically, Radium-223, Lutetium-177 dotatate and Lutetium-177 PSMA-617 are discussed. The course includes didactic presentations from physician experts from radiation oncology, nuclear medicine and medical oncology and medical physicists, with question and answer sessions to discuss practice implementation in various clinical settings (i.e., academic hospital vs community practice, nuclear medicine vs radiation oncology). The purpose of the course is to increase physician, physicist, billing and administration understanding on how to effectively and safely develop a radiopharmaceutical program at their respective institutions.
