Live Webinar - Cardiac PET Imaging: What's new and how to start?

As our healthcare systems is constantly looking for more value medicine, the use of cardiac PET is rapidly expanding and becoming one of the pillar for cardiac imaging. Cardiac PET has been widely adopted because it provides : high diagnostic accuracy and it is safe, efficient and patient-centered. IBA invites you to attend a free webinar presented by 2 leading figures of Nuclear Medicine: Dr. Terrence Ruddy and Dr Parthiban Arumugam. When? November 12th, 3 - 4 pm CET (9-10 am EST) Register here What will you learn from the webinar ? Cardiac PET Myocardial Perfusion Imaging in 2020    Dr Ruddy will start with the basic of PET Cardiac imaging versus other modalities and share the recent advances in the field including the last results of the ISCHEMIA trial and coming CMS AUC (Appropriate User criteria) and its potential impact in the field. Dr. Terrence Ruddy, FRCPC,FACC is the Director of Nuclear Cardiology at University of Ottawa Heart Institute and a Professor of Medicine and Radiology at the University of Ottawa.    How to implement a Cardiac PET Program in your site?  Dr Arumugam will share his expertise on how to plan and implement a PET Cardiac Imaging Program covering resources (cost of equipment, tracers and staffing requirements) and supporting guidelines from national and international societies and also additional information that perfusion PET can offer over and above SPECT for a more precise diagnosis. Dr Parthiban Arumugam is a Consultant Nuclear Medicine Physician at Manchester University NHS Foundation Trust in the United Kingdom Society. Register here

IBA selected to Equip IRE’s new Radioisotope Production Unit Dedicated to Cancer Diagnosis 

The Institute of Radioelements (IRE) has commissioned the Louvain-la-Neuve-based company IBA to install a particle accelerator for the production of radioisotopes for the diagnosis of numerous cancer types such as neuroendocrine tumors and prostate cancer Louvain-la-Neuve, Belgium, September 15th 2020 - IBA (Ion Beam Applications S.A., EURONEXT), the world's leading provider of solutions for the diagnosis and treatment of cancer, and IRE, the world leader in the production of radioisotopes for diagnostic and therapeutic applications in the field of nuclear medicine, announce today that they have signed a contract for the installation of a cyclotron with an energy of 30 MeV (mega electron volt) on an IRE site. Commissioning is scheduled for 2023. Belgium is internationally recognized for its significant role in the advancement of nuclear medicine. These two Belgian companies, world leaders in their field, are joining forces to install this new cyclotron, the Cyclone® IKON, that will enable IRE to produce Germanium-68 (Ge-68), the raw material for the Germanium-68/ Gallium-68 (Galli Ad® and Galli Eo®) generators, for which demand is growing rapidly. These generators are manufactured on the Fleurus site by its pharmaceutical subsidiary IRE ELiT to serve hospitals around the world. Gallium-68 (Ga-68), the end product extracted from these generators, can provide an accurate and earlier diagnosis of many cancers through the use of PET (positron emission tomography) camera technology. Today Gallium-68 is becoming essential for a personalized approach for the patient via nuclear medicine. The theranostic approach (therapeutic and diagnostic) involves the same molecule being combined with Ga-68 to see, through imaging, the tumors that need to be treated. This is coupled with a "therapeutic companion", Lutetium-177 (Lu-177) which, once injected into the patient, will specifically bind to the cancerous cells to destroy them while preserving healthy tissues. Bruno Scutnaire, President of IBA's RadioPharma Solutions Division said: "We are pleased that IRE has selected our Cyclone® IKON following a call for tenders based on demanding specifications to ensure a continuous supply of isotopes for the diagnosis of numerous cancers. For over 35 years, IBA has installed more than 30 cyclotrons of this type around the world, a majority of them are still in operation, proving the excellent reliability of this system." "This investment will give us the opportunity to control the complete production chain of our Ga-68 radiopharmaceutical generators to better supply our customers, but also to diversify our research activities with the possibility in the future of producing other radioisotopes for innovative applications in nuclear medicine via this cyclotron. This project is in line with the Institute's innovation and diversification strategy." said Erich Kollegger, Director General of the IRE.
