Theragnostic Talks: Episode S01E02, Rodney Hicks

In a time when science focus on overall survival – what quality of life does it bring to the patient? In this episode we continue talking to professor Rodney Hicks.

We talk about what the future looks like for more personalized therapy and if sometimes no treatment is the best option.

Rodney Hicks is director of molecular imaging at the Peter MacCallum Cancer Centre and professor of medicine and radiology at the University of Melbourne. He started his career in nuclear medicine and he witnessed one of the first treatments with MIBG (Metaiodobenzylguanidine) in a patient with metastatic pheochromocytoma. For him, an eye-opener, to see the tumor shrink. He pioneered the use of PET (Positron emission tomography) and has introduced a number of novel PET tracers.
