Handbook of Radiopharmaceuticals: Radiochemistry and Applications

Michael J. Welch, Carol S. Redvanly

A comprehensive, authoritative and up-to-date reference for the newcomer to radiopharmaceuticals and those already in the field. Radiopharmaceuticals are used to detect and characterise disease processes, or normal biological function, in living cells, animals or humans. Used as tracer molecules, they map the distribution, uptake and metabolism of the molecule in clinical studies, basic research or applied research. The area of radiopharmaceuticals is expanding rapidly. The number of PET centers in the world is increasing at 20 per cent per year, and many drug companies are utilising PET and other forms of radiopharmaceutical imaging to evaluate products. Readers will find coverage on a number of important topics such as radionuclide production, PET and drug development, and regulations. This book explains how to use radiopharmaceuticals for the diagnosis and therapy of cancer and other diseases. The editors and a majority of the contributors are from the United States.
