Research focus

There has been increasing interest in translating the popular theranostic approach well known from prostate and neuro-endocrine cancer to neuro-oncology. Some of these approaches show promising preliminary results for instance for meningioma and leptomeningeal spread of certain pediatric brain tumours. We aim to investigate theranostics in brain tumours and the added clinical value.

Beside the theranostic part, nuclear medicine may aid in the diagnosis and prognosis of brain tumours. So also the use of PET/CT in the diagnosis/prognosis of brain tumours falls into my research interest.
