A visit to the Nucleo medical centre

On 10 January, LMIFB members had the opportunity to visit the medical centre of "Nucleo" Ltd (www.nucleo.lv), the only place in Latvia where a cyclotron has been installed. It will soon produce radiopharmaceuticals for nuclear medicine diagnostics using PET/CT equipment. During the visit, the members of the Society visited the cyclotron, the radiopharmaceutical production facilities and the PET/CT facility, and also got acquainted with the process of how radiopharmaceuticals are produced and how they are delivered to the patient. Our thanks to Edgars Čimbars and Gundars Strīķis, representatives of SIA "Nucleo" and Arbor Medical Korporācija SIA Maris Kuzminskis for arranging the visit, sharing his valuable insights and experience.
