Introducing Your Degree
According to the World Health Organization, cancer is one of the major causes of the deaths and permanent disability of the world population. According to experts' estimations, modern methods of nuclear medicine are able to improve the efficiency of the early diagnostics by 35 % and reduce cancer mortality by 25-30%. Therefore, specialists in nuclear medicine, especially in radiation therapy, radiopharmaceuticals and imaging are in high demand through over the world.
Nuclear medicine is an excellent networked educational program in the field of nuclear medicine aimed at training competitive specialists for Russian and foreign research and medical centers. TPU has developed this program in cooperation with leading research centers, medical educational institutions, science-intensive and high-tech enterprises in the field of medicine and medical physics in Russia. TPU has long-term experience in the development and production of medical radiopharmaceuticals using the basic facilities of the Tomsk Polytechnic University, such as the IRT-T research reactor and the R-7M cyclotron. The program divided into three terms covers basic physics of nuclear medicine and medical sciences, radiation safety, radiation therapy and imaging, and producing and application of radiopharmaceuticals.
- Anatomy and physiology. Bases of roentgenology
- Clinical dosimetry
- Treatment planning
- Modern techniques of radiation therapy. Bases of radiation therapy planning
- Clinical application of modern techniques of radioisotopic and roentgen diagnostics
- Radiochemistry. Application of radionuclides and radiopharmaceuticals in diagnostics and therapy
