Radiolabeling of Compounds

  • Gopal B. Saha


The use of compounds labeled with radionuclides has grown considerably in medical, biochemical, and other related fields. In the medical field, compounds labeled with β--emitting radionuclides are mainly restricted to in vitro experiments and therapeutic treatment, whereas those labeled with γ-emitting radionuclides have much wider applications. The latter are particularly useful for in vivo imaging of different organs.
