First production of FDG for patient diagnosis at HUS Helsinki

Equipped with a cyclotron, HUS Imaging can now produce their own radiopharmaceuticals, giving more opportunities for diagnosis and answering the increasing demand for PET/CT imaging. The radiopharmacy produces FDG, Ga-DOTANOC and F-PSMA and other tracers (FBPA, FMISO, 11C-Methionine,…) will soon enlarge their possibilities of diagnosis.
The site is equipped with the Cyclone® KIUBE, the Synthera®+ multi-tracer radiochemistry platform as well as hot cells and QC equipment. Thanks to the IntegraLab® expertise, all the equipment have been smoothly integrated in the new radiopharmacy. IBA received the acceptance for the radiopharmacy installed at HUS.
