Congratulations to Teija Koivula for her award on the best scientific paper on IBA Chemistry equipment

Teija Koivula from HUS Helsinki University Hospital in Finland won the IBA award 2019 for best scientific paper on IBA chemistry equipment: “First experience on producing gallium-68 with liquid target at HUS Medical Imaging Center using a Cyclone® KIUBE 180 cyclotron”. 
 
Abstract: HUS Medical Imaging Center at the Helsinki University Hospital provides imaging services for special and primary health care for all clinical sectors within the Helsinki and Uusimaa Hospital District (HUS) in Finland. Significant part of the services are PET-CT studies with 68Ga-labelled radiotracers, such as 68Ga-dotanoc. To support the in-house production of 68Ga-radiopharmaceuticals, a liquid 68Ga-target that enables production of 68Ga with cyclotron was recently purchased. Results from the first irradiation studies are presented in this work.
