The Handbook of Radiopharmaceuticals is an up-to-date, authoritative reference that introduces key issues relating to the production and application of radiopharmaceuticals. The book covers a wide range of radiochemistry and clinical applications including the production of various radionuclides, positron emission tomography (PET) and drug development. Discussions on the uses of radiopharmaceuticals in the diagnosis and therapy of cancer and other diseases are also included. Features include: * 28 Chapters contributed by world-renowned experts in the field * All aspects of radiopharmaceutical production and applications are discussed Written by internationally recognised authors, the Handbook of Radiopharmaceuticals is an invaluable resource for advanced graduates and researchers within radiochemistry, analytical and organic chemistry, drug delivery and pharmacokinetics, biochemistry and pharmacology. This book will also be of interest to clinicians, radiologists and radiographers involved in nuclear medicine and radiology. Radiopharmaceuticals are being increasingly utilized as surrogate markers in drug evaluations. This book will be useful to scientists involved in drug development.Indium-111 also possesses Auger electrons that have a very short penetration range [0.02-10 um] in tissue (cell diameter = 10 um) [Silvester, 1978]. ...
