Abstract

This document is meant to complement Part B of the EANM Guidelines on current good radiopharmacy practice (cGRPP) in the preparation of radiopharmaceuticals' issued by the Radiopharmacy Committee of the European Association of Nuclear Medicine, covering small-scale in-house preparation of radiopharmaceuticals with automated modules. The aim is to provide more detailed and practice-oriented guidance to those who are involved in the small-scale preparation of radiopharmaceuticals, which are not intended for commercial purposes or distribution.
