Smith A2 - Marian Jones A3 - Vanessa Holmes ED1 - Nirmal Singh Y1 - 2011-11-21 PY - 2011 T1 - Production and Selection of Metal PET Radioisotopes for Molecular Imaging N2 - The book Radioisotopes - Applications in Bio-Medical Science contains two sections: Radioisotopes and Radiations in Bioscience and Radioisotopes and Radiology in Medical Science. Section I includes chapters on medical radioisotope production, radio-labeled nano-particles, radioisotopes and nano-medicine, use of radiations in insects, drug research, medical radioisotopes and use of radioisotopes in interdisciplinary fields etc. In Section II, chapters related to production of metal PET (positron emission tomography) radioisotopes, 3-dimensional and CT (computed tomography) scan, SS nuclear medicine in imaging, cancer diagnose and treatments have been included. The subject matter will by highly useful to the medical and paramedical staff in hospitals, as well as researchers and scholars in the field of nuclear medicine medical physics and nuclear bio-chemistry etc. BT - Radioisotopes SP - Ch. 10 UR - https://doi.org/10.5772/23947 DO - 10.5772/23947 SN - PB - IntechOpen CY - Rijeka Y2 - 2021-08-01 ER -
