Is this the end ??

Kerry. Quite a shock.

Lutetium177 is used to treat brain cancers. I got this from a paper on meningioma (a tumor that forms on membranes that cover the brain and spinal cord just inside the skull):

It is feasible to label the chelator site with β+ emitting gallium-68 (68Ga) for PET diagnostic purposes or with β− emitting radioisotopes yttrium-90 (90Y) and lutetium-177 (177Lu) for therapeutic purposes.

Good luck mate.
