Annex-15- Japan Presentation

  1. 1. Tumour Imaging Using Radioisotopes (RAS/6/042) Lead Country: JAPAN PLCC: Shuji TANADA, MD, PhD
  2. 2. 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.
  3. 3. 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
  4. 4. Participation: 13 Member States •Japan (Lead country), Bangladesh, China, India, Indonesia, Malaysia, Myanmar, Pakistan, Philippines, Korea, Sri Lanka, Thailand, and Viet Nam
  5. 5. 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)
  6. 6. 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
  7. 7. 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
  8. 8. 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.
