Physics of Nuclear Medicine 31-12-2020 News

From January 11 to April 14, 2021 will start educational project “Physics of Nuclear Medicine” of the Ural State Medical University and the University of British Columbia (The University of British Columbia, BC Canada)

Link to register for the web course:


The lectures contain original research results that are not reflected in numerous textbooks, but deeply reveal the essence of the phenomena under consideration. One of the main features of the course is its implementation with the participation of the University of British Columbia Dr. Rahmim Arman, Dr. Urib Munozv Carlos and Dr. Klyuzhin Ivan. All lectures will be presented in English.>


Basic principles of radioactive decay; radioisotope production; radiation detection and dosimetry; principles of operation of nuclear medicine instruments (planar, SPECT and PET); principles of tomography; image reconstruction and analysis; quantitative and dynamic imaging; radiopharmaceutical therapies and theranostics.

 Tentative List of Topics by week:

  1. General introduction, examples of clinical applications
  2. Radioactive decays
  3. Production of radioisotopes
  4. Interaction of radiation with matter
