The "World Association of Radiopharmaceutical and Molecular Therapy" (WARMTH) extends its activities throughout the world. WARMTH is the only worldwide organization founded to promote the use of radionuclide molecular therapy, and of the relatively novel paradigm of ‘Theragnostics.’
WARMTH is a voluntary non-profit organization of individuals specifically associated for the purposes, and for using the means, to achieve the following research and educational objectives:
- Advance science and education of therapeutic nuclear medicine and radiopharmaceutical therapy including dosimetry, treatment evaluation, radiation physics, radiation biology and radiation protection for the benefit of public health and humanity.
- Work towards worldwide access to radionuclide therapy by harmonizing good practice.
- Educating nuclear medicine professionals in the use of radionuclide therapies and to facilitate research in this area.
Dear friends of WARMTH,
It is time to say goodbye to another difficult year gone by and we all sincerely hope that the coming years bring a safe world to live and work in with our families and friends.
The year 2021 still saw us going through difficult times and we all tried to find solutions in different unique ways to survive and keep us healthy and safe from the ongoing pandemic. These, we guess, were the worst ever years as experienced by any of us in our lifetime. Thankfully things appeared to be under control in most of the countries this year and all of us were gradually limping back towards normalcy until the current news of the mutated another new deadly strain of the COVID 19 dampened our year-end spirits a bit but let us hope it is like a passing dark piece of cloud which also should go away soon. The current vaccination drive all over the world also hopes to get things back on track sooner.
I am happy that amongst all these hardships we were still able to keep our mission of education unabated and were successful in conducting virtual educational programs ourselves and also in collaborations with other organizations throughout the year. You will be pleased to know that a series of webinars on Theragnostics in collaboration with the British Institute of Radiology (BIR) has already been put in place and are available on the BIR website on their educational platform. These webinars are open access and can be used by our members all over the globe for learning purposes. This has been facilitated by our active member Gopinath Gnanasegaran along with his colleagues of BIR. I am also very happy to inform you that WARMTH has entered into a practical arrangement in the area of radiopharmaceutical therapies and Theragnostics with IAEA, spearheaded by Diana Paez, which will facilitate the scope of our organization further in educational and training activities in the coming years. We ended this year with the WARMTH’s annual ICRT on a virtual platform due to the ongoing challenging travel situation. The 16th ICRT was spearheaded by WARMTH’s COO Mr. Josh Mailman who organized the recording of lectures and other complete logistic support in terms of streaming and organization of the complete conference. The conference was approved for six (6) European Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (EACCME) credit points marking the first time that WARMTH has provided credit for ICRT attendance. We are thankful to our sponsors of 16th ICRT for their generosity during these difficult times. The lectures are all available on WARMTH’s website for you to revisit and share.
The 16th ICRT 2021 is virtual.

On behalf of the 16th ICRT Chair, it is a great pleasure to welcome you to the 16th International Conference on Radiopharmaceutical Therapy (ICRT) of WARMTH virtually.
The two-day conference will bring together the leaders, physicians, scientists, healthcare professionals, and others interested in the challenges related to nuclear medicine and molecular imaging. We assure you of the highest level of scientific discussions relevant to research and policymaking for the promotion of radiopharmaceutical therapy.
While we wish we were coming together in person, we look forward to meeting you again virtually with the hope of meeting in person during 2022
Virtual Education Sessions: December 4-5, 2021
Prof. Dr. Partha S. Choudhury 16th ICRT Chair and WARMTH President

On March 31st we celebrate World “Theragnostics Day” celebrating the day in 1941 when the first radioiodine treatment was administered by Dr. Saul Hertz at Massachusetts General Hospital. The WJNM reflects on this historic first treatment and the continuing innovations in the field of Theragnostics. WARMTH celebrates Theragnotstics Day with a “g” as an article by our colleagues in the EJNMMI points out "“theragnostics” is the better term with its emphasis on knowledge” Frangos, S. & Buscombe, J.R. Eur J Nucl Med Mol Imaging (2019) 46: 519. https://doi.org/10.1007/s00259-018-4204-z

Dear friends of WARMTH,
It is time to say good-bye to a difficult year going by and we all sincerely hope that the coming year brings to us a safe world to live and work in with our families and friends.
The year 2020 saw us going through difficult times and we all tried to find solutions in different unique ways to survive and keep us healthy and safe from the ongoing pandemic which we guess is the worst ever year as experienced by any of us in our lifetime. Thankfully things appear to be under control in most of the countries and all of us are gradually limping back towards normalcy. The current news of the mutated new deadly strain of the COVID 19 has dampened our year-end spirits a bit but let us hope it is like a passing dark piece of cloud that should go away soon. Once again heartfelt condolences on behalf of WARMTH for those WARMTH members who have passed recently.
The world is going through difficult times and we are all trying to find solutions in different unique ways to keep us and our families safe. “Break the chain” has been a common slogan for all the countries which we can achieve by physical distancing and therefore most of the countries are in complete lockdown. I believe at this point in time we are gradually moving towards the peak of the corona crisis and thinking about the post-pandemic life expected in the next few months.
