Radiopharmaceuticals, as the name suggests, are pharmaceutical formulations consisting of radioactive substances (radioisotopes and molecules labelled with radioisotopes), which are intended for use either in diagnosis or therapy or diagnosis. Recently, however, there has been a significant growth of this branch of nuclear medicine with the introduction of a number of new radionuclides and radiopharmaceuticals for the treatment of metastatic bone pain, neuroendocrine and other tumours. This review focused on the production of radiopharmaceuticals, their applications, labelling, packaging and storage.

Abstract


Radiopharmaceuticals, as the name suggests, are pharmaceutical formulations consisting of radioactive substances (radioisotopes and molecules labelled with radioisotopes), which are intended for use either in diagnosis or therapy or diagnosis. Recently, however, there has been a significant growth of this branch of nuclear medicine with the introduction of a number of new radionuclides and radiopharmaceuticals for the treatment of metastatic bone pain, neuroendocrine and other tumours. This review focused on the production of radiopharmaceuticals, their applications, labelling, packaging and storage.
