Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


3D printing provides practical and affordable solutions for nuclear medicine and radiation therapy treatments. In nuclear medicine and radiation therapy, where one of the main goals is to obtain quality images while keeping radiation exposure to a minimum, 3D printing is an ideal technology to help optimize many individual treatments. 3D printing may also be utilized to optimize radiopharmaceutical chemistry for nuclear medicine applications. By both allowing for tailored radiopharmaceutical chemistry development and individualized cancer therapies, 3D printing can truly enhance patient care.
