About the department
The Department of Nuclear Medicine at the University Hospital Jena under the direction of Dr. med. Martin Freesmeyer offers conventional diagnosis involving the use of a gamma camera, PET/CT and a broad range of nuclear treatment options. The main treatment possibilities include radioiodine therapy, selective internal radiation therapy (SIRT) and peptide receptor radionuclide therapy.
The therapeutic method is selected depending on the specific clinical situation. In particular, selective internal radiation therapy (SIRT) is more effective for high vascularization of a liver tumor. The team of specialists of the department is highly experienced in applying SIRT for hepatocellular carcinoma and liver metastasis, for example, due to breast, colon cancer or neuroendocrine tumors (NETs).
