mooc-radioac-cadre_fun-ENIn order to explain to as many people as possible the challenges of using radioactivity in health, particularly in nuclear medicine, and the pluridisciplinary aspect of this medical specialty, the Labex IRON in partnership with the University of Nantes has built a MOOC (Massive Open Online Course) “At the heart of medical radioactivity”.
After a brief introduction to the physical bases of radioactivity and the production of radioactive isotopes of interest, this MOOC presents in different stages how radioactivity is exploited in a medical environment, from the design of a radiopharmaceutical drug to its use in the patient.
Coordinated by Caroline Bodet-Milin and Mickaël Bourgeois and led by Marie-Hélène Gaugler and the Digital Production and Innovation Department (SPIN) of the University of Nantes, this MOOC includes 24 episodes divided into 6 chapters. It was opened on the FUN platform in 2019.
