Be informed about Medical Imaging for Cancer Patients – Listen to the expert on Navigating the Cancer Maze
Most cancer patients know little about Medical Imaging. It is often a mysterious event that weaves in and out of a patient’s life during and after a cancer diagnosis. Medical imaging is also something that is feared by many patients due to the risks of radiation. I address this factor with Dr Chimon. The skill of the team involved in Medical Imaging plays an critical role in patient care, diagnostics, choices of therapy and outcomes. Dr Nevil Chimon is an important link in this chain because he researches and develops radio tracers for medical imaging.
I wish to thank Singapore radio pharmaceuticals – who enabled today’s interview. The science, processes & advances of imaging techniques, & the radio-pharmaceuticals that magically make our inner parts visible to doctors for more accurate diagnosis; is the topic for today’s Navigating the Cancer Maze.
Dr Nevil Chimon shares his passion and invaluable information for cancer patients about the different types of cancer & the best medical imaging to assist diagnosis. This is information that you need to know! All patients become intimately involved with the process of cancer imaging, & the relationship often lasts for 5 or more years. Listen to Dr Chimon talk about medical imaging. He is a medical science graduate of UCLAN, BSc (Hons), Manchester University, MSc and NUS, PhD, with Post-Doctoral training in Molecular Imaging & Radiochemistry completed at the Paterson Institute for Cancer Research & Wolfson Molecular Imaging Centre, UK. He is resident in Singapore.
LISTEN TO DR NEVIL CHIMON NOW ON – NAVIGATING THE CANCER MAZE RADIO
ALL MEDICAL IMAGING TODAY WAS MADE POSSIBLE BY THE WORK OF Mme Marie Curie. She was a Polish-born French physicist famous for her work on radioactivity and twice a winner of the Nobel Prize. Born Maria Sklodowska on November 7, 1867, in Warsaw, Poland, Marie Curie became the first woman to win a Nobel Prize and the only woman to win the award in two different fields (physics and chemistry). Curie’s efforts, with her husband Pierre Curie, led to the discovery of polonium and radium and, after Pierre’s death, the development of X-rays.
She died on July 4, 1934. Read more this remarkable woman and her contribution to Medicine at:
MORE ABOUT DR NEVIL CHIMON: In recognition of his expertise in manufacturing new radiopharmaceuticals, Dr Nevil Chimon and his team at SRP is the first and only company to have secured authorisation from regulators in Singapore, the Health Sciences Authority (HSA), to supply and use ‘Beyond FDG’ radiopharmaceuticals to detect cancer.
Nevil has over 10 years of experience within the pharmaceuticals industry. Holding positions of increasing responsibility within MNCs and SMEs has provided him with broad exposure to projects involving drug discovery and imaging diseases, including cancer and dementia.
Strategically, he recognizes an opportunity exists to leverage on molecular imaging technology to both accelerate drug discovery and improve the healthcare of patients by using PET-CT and PET-MRI multi-modality imaging.
During his 7-years based in Singapore, Dr Chimon has established the first Preclinical CRO imaging facility, obtained GMP licensing for the RadLink cyclotron facility, performed the first clinical trial with a proprietary radiotracer for Bayer Pharmaceuticals, and manufactured new tracers to detect cancer.
In Oct 2012, he obtained exemption from the HSA to supply these new tracers to local public and private hospitals. 7 New tracers are now commercially available to PET centers, with four more on the immediate horizon.
