Nuclear medicine techniques are widely used to image foci of infection and inflammation. Among the relatively new radiopharmaceuticals aimed for this purpose are the radioimmunoconjugates, such as labelled murine monoclonal antigranulocyte antibodies and labelled human polyclonal nonspecific immunoglobulin G. Rapid and accurate localisation of infectious and inflammatory lesions have substantial therapeutic impact in many clinical conditions. Radioimmunoconjugates can contribute to both diagnosis elucidation and to implement a tailored therapeutic strategy.
