Radiopharmaceuticals and Tracers

The past year saw the release of several new, innovative technologies to improve nuclear imaging in both positron emission tomography (PET) and single-photon emission computed tomography (SPECT). 

Neuraceq, florbetaben, F18, F-18, Piramal, alzheimer's

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has approved a third beta-amyloid plaque positron emission tomography (PET) imaging radiotracer to identify Alzheimer’s disease. The FDA’s approval of Piramal Imaging’s Neuraceq (florbetaben F-18 injecti...

PET vs. SPECT, nuclear imaging advances

Just when positron emission tomography (PET) appears to be eclipsing single photon emission computed tomography (SPECT) for cardiac imaging, new advances make SPECT more attractive. Both modalities also have suffered setbacks with radiopharmaceuti...
