Illuminating and Treating Diseases

2017 Alavi-Mandell Award

July 2017

Dr Ryogo Minamimoto, working with his mentor and senior author Dr Andrei Iagaru, received the 2017 Alavi-Mandell Award for the JNM article "Pilot Comparison of 68Ga-RM2 PET and 68Ga-PSMA-11 PET in Patients with Biochemically Recurrent Prostate Cancer". The two agents target different biological processes and have different distribution patterns in the body. Some patients might benefit from having both scans performed, however. In addition, the agents could be labeled with lutetium-177 for therapeutic uses. The article was published in the April 2016 issue of The Journal of Nuclear Medicine.
