The Portuguese Association of Radiology Radiotherapy and Nuclear Medicine Technician recognizes the excellence of the developed work in ESS, P.PORTO Health School

The Portuguese Association of Radiology Radiotherapy and Nuclear Medicine Technicians implemented this year a Newly Graduated Prize in order to distinguish what the best students of Medical Imaging and Radiotherapy, Nuclear Medicine, Radiology or Radiotherapy degrees do in their academic path.

The main goal is to encourage future professionals to research, to promote personal and professional development and to make known this work and dedication to the community that this association represents. In the 2019 edition, the first of its kind, the winner was Fátima Ribeiro, who graduated in Nuclear Medicine from the School of Health (ESS) in the academic year 2017/2018. Her work Study and optimization of protocols for early detection of cardiac amyloidosis through 99mTc-DPD scintigraphy obtained the highest score in the evaluation of the 29 elements of the Scientific Committee, made up of elements of the exercise and the academy. ESS also won the second prize, awarded to Lúcia Monteiro, alumni of the degree in Nuclear Medicine in the academic year 2017/2018, with the Therapeutic work with Radio Dichloride-223 in Prostate Carcinoma: National Reality.

The Technical-Scientific Area of Nuclear Medicine and the Coordination of the Degree in Nuclear Medicine are to be congratulated for all the work developed and the quality of its professionals. The external recognition attributed to these works, follows the recent scientific presentations and that should be substantiated in scientific publications in the preparation phase.

The members of ATC Nuclear Medicine highlight "the great pride and joy of contributing to the professional growth of ESS friends, colleagues and alumni." These awards were due to ESS ATC of Nuclear Medicine over the last few years, which focuses on training professionals of excellence and disseminate the importance of this area.
