Restructuring and reorganising a nuclear medicine department: the example of the Princess Grace Hospital in Monaco
The challenge: "find solutions to install a new pet camera and develop a Gallium-68 pet diagnosis activity"
During the year 2019-2020, the Nuclear Medicine department of the Princess Grace Hospital in Monaco had to undertake extensive restructuring work. The main objectives were to install a new PET camera and develop a 68Ga PET diagnosis activity.
To comply with the Good Preparation Practices (GPP 2007), work had to be carried out to retrofit our radiopharmacy – covering a total area of 12.6 m² and including an entry pass-through – which involved replacing the original hot cells.
In addition, the medical project of the department and the hospital planned the short-term deployment of a vectorised internal radiotherapy activity using the 177Lu-labelled PSMA.
