We report on first results with ISOLDE radioisotopes collected in the frame of the LOI-121. We were able to demonstrate in vivo PET and SPECT imaging using 152Tb and 155Tb for the first time. Also in-vivo PET imaging with the long-lived in vivo generator 140Nd/140Pr was demonstrated, thus enabling longitudinal in vitro and in vivo PET monitoring of the biodistribution of antibodies over many days. Various carrier-free Auger electron emitters are used for basic radiobiological research on the microdosimetry of such short-range radiation. Yields and beam contaminants were determined for a variety of radioisotopes that are of interest for medical applications. An outlook will be given on the planned research program and possible midterm upgrades (HIe-Isolde).
