We generally come across two terms in the literature: nuclear pharmacy and radiopharmacy. Is there any difference between the two? In my opinion, there is no difference between the two terms and they can be used interchangeably. The use of one term or the other is a matter of individual choice. The term nuclear pharmacy will be used in this chapter.
