GENERAL INFORMATION ▣ Name : Medical Applications and Utilization of Cyclotron and RIs ▣ Duration : October 14 ~ November 3 ▣ Venue : Seoul, Korea ▣ Number of Participants : 16 persons from 10 countries ▣ Training Institute : Korea Institute of Radiological and Medical Sciences (KIRAMS) ▣ Qualifications for Applicants Participants should: ― be nuclear medicine physicians with minimum 3 years’ clinical research experience ― have sufficient command of both spoken and written English ― not have ever participated in KOICA’s training program before II . BACKGROUND Early detection of diseases is very important not only for early treatment but also reduction of social medical costs. Nuclear medicine is making astonishing progress with the development of imaging technologies in recent decades. PET(Positron Emission Tomography) has already emerged as a very important diagnostic tool for staging disease, evaluating the effect of treatments, and long- term follow-up of cancer patients in many countries. It enables very early detection of the recurrence that can lead the patients to effective treatment. There is no doubt that PET utilization will be one of the major axes for the
  3. 3. future development of nuclear medicine. Furthermore, with elucidation of the molecular mechanisms of diseases, the molecular imaging using PET instruments will play an important role for diagnosis and treatment of various diseases including malignant diseases. Though clinical PET practice is far from the daily clinical use because of the lack of experts, equipments, and budget in many developing countries, however, it is expected that PET will be more widely introduced into RCA Member States in the near future. This course is designed to provide medical doctors with chances to gain a general overview on the recent development of nuclear medicine and medical applications of radioisotopes including clinical PET and SPECT(Single Photon Emission Computed Tomography) utilization and RI therapy.

KIRAMS Orientation KIRAMS will conduct an orientation on the course at the beginning of the training program. It includes:
  9. 9. a. Opening Ceremony b. Introduction to KIRAMS c. Registration B. Social & Cultural Program 1. Home-Visiting During the course, each participant will have a chance to visit a Korean home and spend several hours with the family as well as have dinner together. 2. City Tour of Seoul Participants will be invited to a city tour of Seoul, which is both the capital and the heart of the Republic of Korea. Seoul is the financial, political, commercial, recreational, educational and cultural center of Korea. During this whole day trip, participants will visit major attractions of Seoul such as ancient palaces and traditional markets. 3. Field Trip and Cultural Experiences Participants will be given opportunities to look around the well known industrial complexes as well as historic places with ancient remains in Korea as follows: Samsung Electronics Co., LG Information & Communications Co., POSCO, Hyundai Motors Co., and Gyeongju Historic areas. ▌Field Trip▐ a. POSCO POSCO has been the most competitive steel company since its establishment in 1968, and keeps growing and evolving as a global company. It produces 26 million tons of steel products each year, enough to produce about 100,000
  10. 10. compact cars a day. With the goal of being the first company to bring changes to the industrial paradigm, POSCO focuses on four goals : Top Quality & World Wide Best Technology, Customer Service Improvement and Optional Growth & Management System Innovation. A commitment to focused R&D investment, cutting-edge research and world-class technical support is why POSCO is today an international steel maker supplying developing countries with advanced technology. b. Hyundai Motor Co. Hyundai Motor Company was established in December 1967. In the early 1980, fueled by the rapid economic growth, Hyundai invested in a major expansion of its Ulsan plant, making a major transition from low volume to high manufacturing. During the latter 1980s, the company prepared itself for the more intense competition that the 1990s would bring. Hyundai Motor Company endured a difficult year in 1998, as domestic sharply declined. It was also a period of company-wise and industry-wise restructuring. The Kia/Asia Motor acquisition will allow Hyundai Motor to achieve economy of scale needed to compete in the global market. c. Korea Atomic Energy Research Institute Since its inception in 1959, KAERI has made rapid growth in research expansion and diversity, new technical development, and strengthened competitiveness in the domestic and international arenas. Nuclear basic research provides the foundation to achieve self-reliance in nuclear technology in the 2000s by applying future-oriented state-of-the-art technologies to the existing technologies to the existing technologies. KAERI puts great emphasis on the development of state-of-the-art technologies for future applications, such as laser technology, artificial intelligence, robotics,
  11. 11. new nuclear materials, radiochemistry, radio-environment, and nuclear fusion. Laser technologies are applied to remote metrology, surface treatment, precision processing, and decommissioning; a radiation-resistant robot improves the safety of operators working in nuclear power plants; new materials improve the endurance and quality of the power plant structure; radio-chemistry promotes the radioactive waste management technology; radio-environmental research analyzes and evaluates the effect of radiation; artificial intelligence is widely utilized to improve the I&C technology in nuclear power plant. Also, KAERI has great interest in developing a nuclear fusion facility and has been actively involved in the international collaboration program. d. Gyeongju Historic Site Gyeongju City and its surroundings fall heir to traces of the glory that flowered then withered in the ancient Shilla Kingdom from 57 BC to 935 AD. The downtown area and the suburbs contain many royal burial mounds and Buddhist remains which preserve that aesthetic zenith of Shilla art and culture. Bulguksa Temple and Seoggulam are perhaps the most well known of Gyeongju’s treasure. Built by Dae-Seong Kim and begun in 751 AD, the 10th year of the region of King Gyeongdeok in memory of his parents, Bulguksa Temple and Seokgulam Grotto were completed over a span of thirty years. Both were designated as World Cultural Heritage sites by UNESCO on December 6, 1995. VI . INFORMATION A. Training Institute 1.
