 The Second AUBMC Theranostics Conference


The field of Theranostics is rapidly evolving. Theranostics, derived from therapy and diagnostics, is the use of radionuclide-labeled agents that specifically permit us to diagnose disease in patients and then use identical or closely related agents to treat the disease. Nuclear medicine plays an integral part in this field as it aids in selecting patients in whom targeted therapy would be most effective, thus paving the way for personalized medicine, especially in oncology. In addition to research, the advancement of Theranostics requires optimal patient selection, such as knowledge of all prognostic factors, optimization of the therapeutic index by prospective dosimetry, the ability to pharmacologically manipulate target expression, the possibility of using cytostatic treatments between and after radionuclide therapy, and the optimization of patient follow-up using accurate, reliable markers of therapeutic efficacy.

The conference included renowned speakers from all over the world giving insights into their research and clinical work in the field of nuclear medicine while presenting new ideas and concepts related to personalized medicine.
