Abstract

Drug development is very expensive and a fight against time. PET offers possibilities to speed up this process by adding information on pharmacokinetics/dynamics of a drug at an early stage. This information can help decision makers to move the drug forward in the drug development process. This book highlights the different ways PET can be used and describes the latest trends in the various disciplines within nuclear medicine to further improve methodologies and increase the number of tools to accelerate drug development. Tracer development, instrumentation, and data analysis are described in detail.
