Welcome to the Division of Nuclear Medicine

On this website, you will find all public information regarding the Division of Nuclear Medicine of the K.U.Leuven and University Hospital Gasthuisberg.

In the General And Contact section you will find a welcome word of the Division Head, Prof. K. Van Laere. Here is also the contact information and mission statement of the division.gasthuisberg_foto.jpg

Building on the tradition of scientific education of high quality of the K.U.Leuven, the Teaching section shows the activities of the department regarding teaching at the university level, higher education and postgraduate level, as well as internal education of residents-in-training, co-assistants and technologists. Links to selected course material or lectures are provided.

Since ages, the K.U.Leuven has built a tradition as leading research center in Europe. The Division of Nuclear Medicine tries to focus on this by a rigourous selection of research projects, research personnel and strong multidisciplinary links to form the basis for solid scientific research, education and services. The Research section incorporates the ongoing and recently finished research projects, the research organigram, both intra- and interuniversity and industry collaborations, publication lists and on-line publications such as theses.

As a Clinical department, scientific based clinical expertise and evidence-based medicine (EBM) form the basis of a leading large conventional nuclear medicine and positron emission tomography (PET) center. The incorporation of ISO certification and GMP (good manufacturing practice) is the cornerstone of a quality diagnostic and therapeutic service division.

The Personnel section gives an overview with short CV of all clinical and research personnel currently employed at the division.

The Molecular Imaging Center "MIRACLE" (Molecular Imaging Research and Clinic Leuven) is designed to intergrate the highly sensitive techniques of PET, SPECT, microPET and microSPECT with other anatomo-functional imaging modalities such as CT, MRI, optical imaging to develop an integrated set of core technologies for drug development, clinical trials and fundamental research studies. The Core Lab incorporates the available know-how and infrastructure of the Division of Nuclear Medicine for study design, data mining and analysis of functional imaging-based clinical trials.

The How To Reach section provides practical information to reach the Division and the Gasthuisberg University Hospital in Leuven.

The Links section gives an overview of constantly updated links to nuclear medicine organisations, departments, industries and scientific congresses, but also links to general academic institutions, bibliography links, local sociocultural happenings and other events.

The Photo Gallery shows you an informal appreciation of the division and its team members.
