    OVERVIEW

    The use of radiopharmaceuticals is constantly increasing in diagnostic and therapeutic fields. Metabolic radiotherapy is widely used in the treatment of many tumors and the conjugation of specific radionuclides with proteins, particularly with monoclonal antibodies, allows the implementation of specific therapies. Therefore, basic knowledge of this particular area of pharmaceutical chemistry is of paramount importance for students who will become part of the scientific community.

    AIMS AND CONTENT

    LEARNING OUTCOMES

    - provide the student with the basic notions on the activity and use of the most common radiopharmaceuticals, both in the diagnostic and therapeutic fields.

    - show the student the figure of the radio-pharmacist.

    AIMS AND LEARNING OUTCOMES

    Attendance to classes and individual study will allow the student to:

    - know the topics covered during the teaching;

    - acquire the ability to apply the acquired knowledge to problems similar to those described;

    - acquire an adequate scientific language and the ability to connect the various topics covered in the classes or the topics of the course and topics covered in previous teachings.
