Radiopharmacology in Nuclear Medicine

  • Gopal B. Saha


Radiopharmacology is a new field of interest and offers a wide scope for further research and investigation into the design and use of radiopharmaceuticals. Radiopharmacology deals with the physiopathologic handling of radiopharmaceuticals in the living system. The study of the distribution and the mechanism of localization of a radiopharmaceutical in different organs is the essence of radiopharmacology. Knowledge of radiopharmacology provides more information and accuracy in the diagnosis of human diseases.
