Synopsis:

The aim of the course is to extend the knowledge gained in previous studies in the field of nuclear medicine. The greatest attention is paid to current trends in imaging methods, dosimetry for individual treatment planning and newly developed procedures and pharmaceuticals for targeted radionuclide therapy. Part of the course is also devoted to the specifics of radiation protection in nuclear medicine workplaces.
