“As the first ever approved Peptide Receptor Radionuclide Therapy (PRRT) in Canada, Lutathera represents a significant innovation for the neuroendocrine tumor community. We are proud to work with the Federal and Provincial agencies to make this important treatment option accessible for all patients who need such therapy.

We believe nuclear medicine has the potential to offer many benefits to cancer patients and hope to bring further advances like Lutathera to Canada in the future. The approval of therapies like Lutathera help highlight the role of medical radiation technologists in patient care.”

    Any time frame as to when lutathera will be available in Canada. I am off to Germany to have the treatment done and would assume the cost to have it done in Canada would be substantially less.
