1st World Congress on Gallium-68 and Peptide Receptor Radionuclide Therapy (PRRNT)
Overview of the Event

The 1st World Congress on Gallium-68 and Peptide Receptor Radionuclide Therapy (PRRNT) took place on June 23-26, 2011 in Bad Berka, Germany. This Congress, co-organised by the Department of Nuclear Medicine/PET Center, Zentralklinik Bad Berka and the Institute of Nuclear Chemistry, Johannes Gutenberg University, Mainz, was targeted to chemists, physicians, and investigators dealing with generators, PET radiochemistry as well as molecular imaging and radionuclide therapy.

The Congress attracted over 400 participants from 53 countries coming from all 5 continents. In addition to the official programme, there were a number of social and cultural events.

The town of Bad Berka, near Weimar Germany.

The objectives of the Congress were to educate and to offer a unique forum for high level scientific discussions on the recent developments in the exciting field of nuclear medicine 'Theranostics'. Theranostics is a process of diagnostic therapy for individual patients - to test them for possible reaction to taking a new medication and to tailor a treatment for them based on the test results.

The Congress was held in conjunction with an Industry Exhibition which presented the latest technological developments in radionuclide generator technology and Ga-68 modules, devices and labeling strategies.

You may review the complete programme of the Congress, and below you will find a list of recordings produced during the 4-day event. You may also wish to review photos taken during the conference.

Kindly note that only audio recordings are available for the pre-congress sessions.

Nuclear Medicine
at Bad Berka

Zentralklinik Bad Berka has been recognised by ENETS as a Centre of Excellence in Treatment of Neuroendocrine Tumors. The treatment is multi-disciplinary but the focus is on Peptide Receptor Radionuclide Therapy (PRRNT). What sets treatment by Dr. Baum and his team at Bad Berka apart from PRRT offered at other medical centers in Europe is the individualised approach to dosimetry and treatment.
