    • Tumour Imaging Using Radioisotopes (RAS/6/042) Lead Country: JAPAN PLCC: Shuji TANADA, MD, PhD
      • Background:
      • Cancer is increasing rapidly in Asian countries.
      • Nuclear medicine technology is useful in the diagnosis of cancer.
      • e.g. diagnosis of primary tumor, detection of metastasis
      • Positron emission tomography (PET) is very useful in the management of cancer patients.
      • Sentinel lymph node detection (SLND) is important in the management of patients with breast cancer and melanoma.
      • Objectives:
      • <Implementation of Tumor Imaging with Radioisotopes>
      • To transfer imaging techniques of PET and SPECT
      • PET: positron emission tomography
      • SPECT: single photon emission computed tomography
      • To validate and develop protocol for sentinel lymph node detection (SLND) technique
      • To improve the management of cancer patients
      • Participation: 13 Member States
      • Japan (Lead country), Bangladesh, China, India, Indonesia, Malaysia, Myanmar, Pakistan, Philippines, Korea, Sri Lanka, Thailand, and Viet Nam
    • Regional Work Plan for 2005 – 2007 2005-04: Project Coordinator Meeting (Chiba, Japan) 2005-10: RTC on PET (Fukui, Japan) 2006-04: RTC on SLND with NM Technique (Beijing, China) 2006-10: RTC on Oncological Application (Seoul, Korea) 2006-11: RTC on PET Applications (Maebashi and Chiba, Japan) 2007-04: Mid-term Review Meeting (Viet Nam) 2007-08: RTC on PET for Less Experienced RCA MSs (India) 2007-11: RTC on Advanced PET and Oncographic Radiopharmaceuticals (Thailand) 2008-01: Final Coordination Meeting (Sri Lanka)
      • Regional Training Courses:
      • RTC on PET (Fukui, Japan, 10/2005)
        • 21 Participants from 9 Member States
      • RTC on SLND with NM Technique (Beijing, China, 04/2006)
        • 21 participants from 11 Member States
      • RTC on Nuclear Oncological Application (Seoul, Korea, 10/2006)
        • RTC was held as the joint conference of 9th Congress of World Federation of Nuclear Medicine and Biology
      • RTC on PET Applications (Maebashi & Chiba, Japan, 11/2006)
        • 22 participants from 11 Member States
      • National Work Plan:
      • Participating Member States are required to submit National Work Plan (NWP).
        • National Project Coordinators and participants of RTC
        • To organize the Organizing or Steering Committee to implement NWP
        • To contact the National Responsible Authority for the budgetary supports
        • To host the National Training Course (NTC) to transfer the achievement of the Regional Training Course
      • Issues:
      • Submission and implementation of National Work Plan have been inadequate.
        • Only Philippines and Thailand have submitted NWP.
      • Participating Member States are encouraged to promote the further use of nuclear medicine technology in cancer diagnosis.
          • eg Implementation of PET and other nuclear medicine technology in their countries.
    • RTC on Positron Emission Tomography (PET) 3-7 October 2005 Biomedical Imaging Research Center, University of Fukui, Japan Thank you for your attention!
