Nuclear medicine is a medical specialty involving the application of radioactive substances in the diagnosis and treatment of r medicine imaging, in a sense, is "radiology done inside out" or "endoradiology" because it records radiation emitting from within the body rather than radiation that is generated by external sources like addition, nuclear medicine scans differ ICDPCS: C. In Nuclear Medicine (Fourth Edition), Iodine Meta-iodo-benzyl-guanidine. Iodine meta-iodo-benzyl-guanidine (MIBG), a norepinephrine analog, has been used to study the adrenergic status of the heart. The heart is richly innervated, and MIBG has been used to provide prognostic insights. Uptake of MIBG is blocked in patients taking drugs (e.g., guanethidine, cocaine) that compete. BEAVER J.

This chapter presents a brief introduction to radioisotopes, sources and types of radiation, applications, effects, and occupational protection. The natural and artificial sources of radiations are discussed with special reference to natural radioactive decay series and artificial radioisotopes. Applications have played significant role in improving the quality of human by: 2. trends in therapeutic nuclear medicine, evaluated the established procedures and assessed the re-emergence of certain old procedures. Ninety-nine official participants and 11 observers from 36 countries participated in the seminar. A total of 48 scientific papers and 13 invited lectures on a wide spectrum of basic and clinical aspects. A radiopharmaceutical is a preparation intended for in-vivo use that contains a radionuclide in the form of a simple salt or a complex. It may exist as a solid, liquid, gas or a pseudo gas. The chemical and physical identity and a form of a radiopharmaceutical are very important because in each case, once administered the radiopharmaceutical is intended to target certainCited by: 1. Among all the radionuclides with potential in nuclear medicine, we shall remember the currently most used ones: Iodine and Technetium 99m as γ emitters, Fluorine 18 as β+ emitters, Iodine.
