The rapid development and increasing interest in the use of metabolic imaging techniques has created a steady demand for on-site or regional production of radioisotopes. This chapter presents some basic concepts associated with radioisotope production, in particular, those aspects related to cyclotron production of positron-emitting radionuclide.
