Radioactive Infusions and use of Smart Pumps

Our oncology service line will be implementing some new therapies which require infusion with radioactive medications: Lutathera and Pluvicto. I am still in the discovery phase, and I'm looking for anyone who has had experience implementing these. The request from this service line is to purchase an ambulatory infusion pump that our health system currently does not utilize. I'm going through the details to determine if our current pump options will work, which can help for managing drug libraries, service by our biomedical team, and supply purchase standardization. I'm also curious about the drug library for these infusions!

Thanks in advance for your assistance,
