EANM 2020 – virtual edition: discover the innovating range of radiation protection solutions and the versatility of the fractionation and injection unit Posijet®
On the occasion of the next edition of the EANM congress and faced with the health crisis, Lemer Pax and Medisystem take advantage of the digital tool to present their range of radiation protection solutions innovatively and interactively. On the programme: on-line chat, videos, sponsoring of fascinating scientific sessions echoing the versatility of the high-energy radiopharmaceutical fractionation and injection unit Posijet® (fractionation and injection of Gallium-68 and Ammonia-13 as well as the enjoyable reception of young patients).
Exceptionally this time, the two French leaders in radiation protection will meet you on line. The two companies decided to support the EANM this year by sponsoring 3 scientific programme sessions. Three sessions on quite different themes for which the Posijet® injection unit may prove to be ideally suited thanks to its compatibility with the fractionation and administration of the high energy radiopharmaceuticals required for numerous PET scans in nuclear medicine.
Prostate cancer: fractionation and injection of patient doses of Fluorine-18 and Gallium-68 with the Posijet®
First module: clinical oncology presentation with at the start of the session: “the prostate beyond staging and re-stagnation“. A module dealing with prostate cancer, for which the Posijet® independent unit can be used to prepare and inject the dose of radiopharmaceuticals labelled with Fluorine-18 (18F) as well as with Gallium-68 (68Ga) for both static and dynamic acquisitions under optimum radiation protection conditions for the operators.
You can watch this EANM session on Thursday 22 October at 1:30 pm – Channel 8
Breakthroughs in paediatric imaging: special care has been taken to give the Posijet® a reassuring design to put children at ease
Second module: breakthroughs in paediatric imaging. The Posijet® injection unit has received specific certification for paediatric use. Apart from optimising its parameters to adapt to paediatric procedures, considerable attention has been paid to the aesthetics of the Posijet® with the creation of a design especially intended for children representing an “imaginary robot”. Giving the Posijet® a happy face makes the treatment less stressful for the young patients. The paediatric version of the Posijet® is now operational in the nuclear medicine ward of “Aghia Sophia” Children’s Hospital in Athens (Greece), but its new look is also attracting other hospitals such as the Rodez University Hospital (CHU) in France, which has chosen this fun design for their routine PET scans.

13N-Ammonia: the Posijet®, first preparation and injection unit capable of injecting a radiopharmaceutical which has an extremely short half-life
Last module: the latest breakthroughs in PET-MPI/CT with a session dedicated to 13N-Ammonia (13N-ammonia Regadenoson Stress PET/CT MPI: The Impact Of Persistent Caffeine Blood Levels On Myocardial Blood Flow Metrics Utilizing A Low-Dose Rest/High-Dose Stress Protocol). A major innovation in radiation protection, the development of a software version of Posijet®, compatible with this highly specific radiopharmaceutical due to its extremely short half-life, has been operational since 2019. A first in Europe! In the ward of the Geneva University Hospital (HUG), a Posijet® injection unit dedicated to 13N-Ammonia eliminates the problems of high irradiation of the hands when preparing this radiopharmaceutical for PET cardiac scans. Since its installation, the Posijet® has already prepared over 3000 doses of 13N-Ammonia.
In the Geneva University Hospitals, a second Posijet® injection unit has been integrated in a mobile medical imaging unit to bring an imaging centre as close as possible to the patients while guaranteeing optimum radiation protection conditions for the healthcare personnel– click here to access our case study!
