In 2005, the term theragnostics (theranostics) was introduced for describing the use of imaging for therapy planning in radiation oncology. In nuclear medicine, this expression describes the use of tracers for predicting the absorbed doses in molecular radiotherapy and, thus, the safety and efficacy of a treatment. At present, the most successful groups of isotopes for this purpose are 123I/124I/131I, 68Ga/177Lu, and 111In/86Y/90Y. The purpose of this review is to summarize available data on… CONTINUE READING
