INTRODUCTION (68)Ga is a positron-emitting nuclide that has significant imaging potential given that, unlike cyclotron-produced (18)F, the isotope can be produced on-site utilizing a (68)Ge/(68)Ga generator. We recently synthesized a novel bone-seeking agent by coupling a bisphosphonate with the (68)Ga chelator 1,4,7-triazacyclononane-1,4,7-triacetic acid(More)
From the X-ray crystal structures of Ga-DOTA chelates, we were able to deduce that two free carboxylate groups of the radiogallium-DOTA complex may be utilized for coupling to functional moieties that recognize molecular targets for in vivo imaging without reducing the radiogallium-complex stability. Thus, we designed(More)
