I. Lecture Elements of nuclear physics for the applications in radiopharmacy Radiotoxicology Radiochemistry Radiopharmacy II. Practical exercises Counting statistics Attenuation Protein labeling, purification, radiochemical purity Liquid scintillation : chemiluminescence, quenching Blood volume determination Quality control of generator 99Mo/99m Tc eluate Quality control of HMPAO-Tc Biological distribution III. SEMINARS Personnalized work for the student in the area of his specialization
This course is intended for (future) professionals with professional activities dealing with the use of non sealed radioactive sources. 3 areas are covered: radiotoxicology (with focus on internal contaminations, their diagnosis, and their treatments); radiochemistry (with focus on nuclear reactions and nuclear chemistry for the preparation of radiolabeled compounds for medical use); radiopharmacy (quality control and quality assurance, special problems with some radiopharmaceuticals)
Lectures: 2 hours blocks on a special topic Practical exercise: 1 week with handling of radioactive materials (labelling, quality control) Seminars: Personnalized work for the student in the area of his specialization
