Abstract

Positron emission tomography (PET) offers an unique opportunity to study regional distribution of different compounds noninvasively. After i.v. injection of substances labelled with short-lived isotopes such as [11C], [13N], [15O], [18F] or [68Ga] the distribution of the radioactive label is measured as a function of time by means of a tomographic technique, based on the annihilation radiation produced during the process of positron emission.
