A review of the feasibility of imaging receptors was made using published literature. The results suggest that there is no physical limitation to imaging the classical biochemical receptors using currently available compounds. Limitations occur because of biological constraints. These constraints are those of delivery of contrast material to the site of the receptor in sufficient quantities and the biological implications of saturating receptors. These limitations are reduced by improving the… CONTINUE READING
