Summary PET, a nuclear medical imaging modality, is ideally suited to produce biomedical molecular images by use of positron-emitting chemical entities. This book provides information on the different applications of PET isotopes, such as F-18, C-11, Ga-68, Cu-64, Y-86, Br-76, Br-77 and I-124, and their impact on molecular imaging
