Consider the importance of kinetic enhancement of radiopharmaceuticals. In the field of nuclear medicine, essentially everything relies on the distribution or the regional kinetics of an administered radiopharmaceutical. In many cases, a picture of distribution is enough to provide the needed clinical or research information, or a quantitative measure of uptake into the tissue of interest may be needed to provide the desired information. In the most complicated cases, the desired information is… 
Quantitative analysis of positron emission tomography (PET) with the second generation translocator protein (TSPO) ligand [18F]GE-180
Results comparing the recently developed TSPO tracers [18F]GE-180 and [18f]DPA-714 with [11C]-(R)-PK11195 in a rodent model of subtle focal inflammation are reported.
Regulation of pharmacokinetics for low molecular weight drugs
Familiarity, ease of access, trust, and awareness of risks, will all be important for the future.

Competitive Displacement of Serum Protein Binding of Radiopharmaceuticals with Amino Acid Infusion Investigated with N-Isopropyl-p-123I-Iodoamphetamine
Almo acid infusion can improve brain accumulation by competitive displacement of serum protein binding in vivo, and was found suitable for use as displacers for binding site II and AGP.
Preclinical evaluation of fluorine-18-labeled androgen receptor ligands in baboons.
All three compounds can be used to determine AR-positive tissue in primates and compound I gave the highest prostate to soft tissue ratios in both baboons and prostate uptake was shown to be AR-mediated by blocking uptake through the coadministration of testosterone.
7α-18F-Fluoromethyl-Dihydrotestosterone and 7α-18F-Fluoromethyl-Nortestosterone: Ligands to Determine the Role of Sex Hormone–Binding Globulin for Steroidal Radiopharmaceuticals
Sex hormone–binding globulin (SHBG) is believed to play a key role in steroidal radiopharmaceutical delivery to target tissues in humans. To better understand the action of SHBG, we have synthesized
