New E-learning modules on the Human Health Campus

7 new learning e-modules are now online provided by IAEA.

Click here to visit the Human Health website

These E-learning modules are very comprehensive, interactive learning materials aimed at expanding the educational opportunities of health professionals working in the field of nuclear medicine and diagnostic imaging.

Acknowledging the fact that science-based medicine is crucial for professional development, we have also integrated more than 700 high-quality literature sources covering a plethora of topics in modern day clinical practices that can be found in the Guidelines and Literature component of each clinical section (e.g. oncology, cardiovascular, endocrinology, etc.)

Guidelines and literature section can be found here

Myocardial Perfusion Imaging; e-Learning in Nuclear Medicine – An Atlas of interesting Nuclear Medicine Cases; A Guide to FDG PET/CT in Clinical Oncology;

Gallery of Cardiology Cases: Asymptomatic Patients; Schematic Approach to Liver Segmentation; Schematic Approach to Laryngeal Anatomy; and Schematic Approach to Lung Segmentation.

The release of the publications:  ‘Guided Intraoperative Scintigraphic Tumour Targeting (GOSTT); Implementing Advanced Hybrid Molecular Imaging and Non-imaging Probes for Advanced Cancer Management’ (IAEA Human Health Series No. 29), and ‘Radiolabelled Autologous Cells: Methods and Standardization for Clinical Use’ (Human Health Series No. 5).
 
‘Guided Intraoperative Scintigraphic Tumour Targeting (GOSTT); Implementing Advanced Hybrid Molecular Imaging and Non-imaging Probes for Advanced Cancer Management’   (http://www-pub.iaea.org/MTCD/Publications/PDF/Pub1648web-19833477.pdf) provides an updated source for professionals using guided intra- or perioperative scintigraphic tumour targeting, facilitating the clinical decision making process as well as the implementation of minimally invasive surgical procedures. This publication provides a thorough update on innovations in the use of radiopharmaceuticals for sentinel lymph node mapping and radioguided sentinel lymph node biopsy. Furthermore, it provides a very comprehensive insight into newest advances in the implementation of hybrid imaging technologies for the surgical management of cancer patients in conjuction with intraoperative regional lymph node mapping. Finally, it discusses the use of small-field scintigraphic imaging devices in the operating theatre.
 
‘Radiolabelled Autologous Cells: Methods and Standardization for Clinical Use’ (http://www-pub.iaea.org/MTCD/Publications/PDF/Pub1437web-26591607.pdf) provides a framework for the standardization of the methods using radiolabelled autologous blood cells, including dendritic cell labelling and stem cell labelling. It is aimed at professionals working in the field of nuclear medicine. We hope that this publication will serve as a reference document for national revision and updating of protocols in all Member States.
 
Given the unique set of information provided in these two publications, we hope that they will contribute to establishing high-quality standards in the clinical management, as well as support the research efforts with the aim of improving health care in Member States.

Finally, the Distance Assisted Training Online (DATOL) for Nuclear Medicine Professionals is also now available on the Human Health Campus

DATOL is a comprehensive set of training materials available in English and Spanish. It is suitable for personal study, continuous professional development and formal vocational training. It contains easy-to-understand descriptions of nuclear medicine procedures as well as the underlying science, with emphasis on practical applications of such procedures, particularly in a clinical setting.
