A new version of Radiolab -application for comprehensive management of hospital radiopharmacies- is now available at www.radiopharmacy.net. Radiolab 4.0 includes among others the following new features:
- Addition of small, medium and large labels for radioactive products and cold kits.
- Addition of Ga-68 generator in the Generators module.
Each user can change their own password in the Maintenance module without relying on the Administrator. This new functionality is only active in the registered versions of Radiolab.
The activity of the radionuclides in the Waste module is now shown in mCi and Bq. Only those radionuclides having at least a residual activity of 0.01 Bq are shown.
The user who made the last backup of the Radiolab database is registered, and also when and where they made the backup is registered.
- Effective doses are automatically calculated at two different times. Firstly, they are automatically calculated when you import the prescriptions in the Prescriptions section of the Dispensing module. And secondly, each effective dose is automatically recalculated when the administered radiopharmaceutical, its activity or the patient’s age is modified in the Dispensing module.
- The Dosimetry section has been included in the Traceability module, which allows the reporting of the effective doses of all radiopharmaceuticals administered to every patient, as well as the cumulative total effective dose of all of them.

The Society of Nuclear Medicine & Molecular Imaging (SNMMI) is now accepting abstracts for the SNMMI 2017 Annual Meeting, June 10-14, 2017 in Denver, CO.
The XIV Turku PET Symposium will be held on 27 – 30 May 2017 in Turku, Finland
In 2015, a Working Group (WG) on Nomenclature in Radiopharmaceutical Chemistry and related areas was created to clarify terms and to generate consensus on the use of a standardized nomenclature in our field. This WG consists of members from several countries (Canada, Sweden, Germany, United States, Japan, United Kingdom, Korea, Austria, etc.) as well as active members of relevant scientific societies (European Association of Nuclear Medicine, Radiopharmaceutical Sciences, Society of Nuclear Medicine, Society of Radiopharmacology, etc.).
After conducting a global survey using a questionnaire, the WG has prepared a document (30-11-16-consensus-nomenclature-rules) and has opened a consultation period thereon to provide comments, as some problems and terms have not yet been resolved. Suggestions for topics not covered in this document are also welcome. Any comments on this document may be sent to Heinz H. Coenen (firstname.lastname@example.org) and Antony Gee (email@example.com) before 31 January 2017. After this deadline, opinions expressed during the consultation period will be discussed and the resulting consensus will be incorporated into a pre-final document, which will be republished on the SRS website. The outstanding issues will be discussed at the 22nd meeting of the ISRS in Dresden (14-19 May 2017). Subsequently, the resulting consensus naming guidelines will be published in an appropriate journal as a reference source and as a basis for discussion with journal editors, IUPACs and key stakeholders beyond the immediate peer group of the WG.
A new version of Radiolab -application for comprehensive management of hospital radiopharmacies- is now available at www.radiopharmacy.net. Radiolab 3.1 includes among others the following new features:
- Incorporation of Ga-68 generators.
- Printing labels of various sizes in the Dispensing module.
- Incorporation of buttons to allow, after entering user password, editing and deleting records in all modules with data entry (for compliance with the Data Protection Law).
- Issuance of a report of non-withdrawn Tc-99m generators.
- Improved data entry mode on the cold kits labelling module.
