Single photon emission computed tomography (SPECT) is the state-of-the-art imaging modality in nuclear medicine despite the fact that only a few new SPECT tracers have become available in the past 20 years. Critical for the future success of SPECT is the design of new and specific tracers for the detection, localization, and staging of a disease and for monitoring therapy. The utility of SPECT imaging to address oncologic questions is dependent on radiotracers that ideally exhibit excellent… CONTINUE READING

The utility of SPECT imaging to address oncologic questions is dependent on radiotracers that ideally exhibit excellent tissue penetration , high affinity to the tumor - associated target structure , specific uptake and retention in the malignant lesions , and rapid clearance from non - targeted tissues and organs .
In general , a target - specific SPECT radiopharmaceutical can be divided into two main parts : a targeting biomolecule ( e.g. peptide , antibody fragment ) and a γ-radiation emitting radionuclide ( e.g. ( 99m)Tc , ( 123)I ) .
