Half of his core staff, including radiation oncologists, medical physicists, radiotherapists as well as a radiopharmacist
, a nuclear medicine physician and nuclear medicine technologists have participated in IAEA fellowships and trainings in hospitals in the region and in Europe.
For example, a person with an IRC code might have career interests similar to those of a nuclear-fuels research engineer, a radiopharmacist
, an aeronautical drafter, a soil conservation technician, a toxicologist, or a laboratory assistant--with differences partly based on level of education.
The training included orientation to nuclear medicine, basic chemistry of radioactive materials, and mixing and handling of the isotope with the ligand (radiopharmaceutical) taught by the radiopharmacist
Was with great interest that I read the article: "The need of radiopharmacist
in Sri Lanka" Archives of Pharmacy Practice, vol 04, issue 4, Oct/Dec 2013, by Dr.
4] With the advent of new diagnostic and treatment modalities in nuclear medicines it is imperative to seek the services of a radiopharmacist
Part of this environment will address the particular needs of trainee radiopharmacists
by providing distance-learning material for supporting RBL (Ryan, Scott, Freeman, & Patel, 2000).
The Institute has already supported the work of the IAEA by hosting a training course for African radiopharmacists
Having nuclear medicine physicians working alongside radiologists, cardiologists, medical physicists and radiopharmacists
can therefore greatly improve the treatment and diagnosis of cardiovascular diseases, Paez said.
