About the department

The Department of Nuclear Medicine University Hospital Jena offers the full range of radioisotope diagnostics and treatment using the state-of-art gamma cameras and PET-CT systems. All medical services comply with the guidelines of national and international professional societies, which ensures an accurate diagnostics and optimal treatment outcome. The department is headed by PD Dr. med. Martin Freesmeyer.

The main therapeutic options of the department include radioiodine therapy, selective internal radiotherapy, peptide-receptor radionuclide therapy. A therapeutic method is selected depending on the specific clinical case. For example, selective internal radiation therapy (SIRT) is more effective in intensive vascularization of liver tumors. The SIRT-therapy is the most widely used in the treatment of hepatocellular carcinoma and liver metastases in breast, colon or neuroendocrine cancers. The radioiodine therapy is effectively used in the treatment of hyperthyroidism in order to reduce the size of the thyroid gland, as well as for the treatment of the thyroid cancer recurrences.

The service range of the department includes:

  • Conventional diagnostics using gamma cameras
    • Scintigraphy in inflammatory processes
    • Myocardial scintigraphy
    • Lung scintigraphy
    • Parathyroid scintigraphy
    • Renal scintigraphy
    • Thyroid scintigraphy
    • Skeletal scintigraphy
  • PET-CT diagnostics (innovative diagnostic method, which combines positron emission tomography and computed tomography)
  • Therapeutic services
    • Radioiodine therapy
    • Radiosynovectomy
    • Selective internal radiation therapy
    • Peptide receptor radionuclide therapy
    • Other diagnostic and therapeutic services
