Radioactive drug development is a multi-disciplinary task. Therefore, dedicated scientists and experts from different fields of specialisation have contributed to this book. The text reviews forty years of advances in radiopharmaceutical development based on Technetium. The first section reviews basic principles and analytic methods, and information on chemical makeup of radiopharmaceuticals. Part 2 reviews 99mTc-radiopharmaceuticals used in nuclear medicine, thoroughly outlining their chemistry, formulation, pharmacokinetics and clinical applications. This textbook gives an account of the accomplishments related to the development of 99mTc-radiopharmaceuticals and their application in diagnostic nuclear medicine. Since radioactive drug development is a multi-disciplinary task, experts working in nuclear medicine and research institutions have contributed valuable information concerning the preparation with sterile kits, methods of quality control, and the use of 99mTc-radiopharmaceuticals in patients. In addition, the legal aspects governing production and clinical application are also considered. Section 1 contains basic principles and methods used for analysis. Special emphasis is given to the analytical methods verifying pharmaceutical quality. Section 2 contains monographs of 99mTc-radiopharmaceuticals used in nuclear medicine. Each monograph includes information on the chemistry, formulation, commercial products and trade names, factors affection in-vivo performance, clinical information on pharmacokinetics, as well as details concerning the clinical application and the radiation dose to patients. This book can serve for daily practice in nuclear medicine, serving as a reference source as well as a teaching tool.
