The Workshop will address the clinical potential of radiotheranostics in cancer diagnosis and treatment, focusing on the examples of neuroendocrine tumours and advanced prostate cancer, two indications for which now approved radiopharmaceuticals exist. The workshop attempts to identify obstacles for a broader use of such radiopharmaceuticals in clinical practice and discusses possible ways to overcome them.
The workshop will be held as a hybrid event and can also be followed via Webex.
Please note that for the attendance on site only a limited hotel capacity is available and the requests are processed on a first come, first served basis.
Attending the workshop is free of charge, but no reimbursement for travel and hotel costs is granted. The deadline for registration is 31st March 2023.
