Bad Berka Approach to PRRT Center

PRRT (Peptide Receptor Radionuclide Therapy)THERANOSTICS Center for Molecular Radiotherapy and Molecular ImagingENETS Center of ExcellenceZentralklinik Bad Berka 99437 Bad Berka, GermanyTel. +49 364 585 2200Fax +49 364 585 3515

An individualized approach to dosimetry and treatment, but also the view that patients should be administered lower amounts of radioactivity at more frequent and prolonged intervals (3-6 months in between therapies), rather than given a high dose of radiation at shorter intervals. The Bad Berka approach followed by Dr. Baum and his team sees NET cancer as a chronic disease to be treated over time.
