About the book

Radiopharmaceuticals are special medicinal preparations containing radioisotopes which are used in many clinical areas for either diagnosis and/or therapy.

This book intends to provide the reader with a comprehensive overview of the current state-of-the-art in nuclear medicine's safety, featuring an easy-to-follow, vignette-based format that focuses on the most important evidence-based developments in tradiopharmaceuticals as important area in cancer therapy, bone metastasis, and neuroendocrinology tumours.

This book will aim to present the different methods for preparation, products evaluation, pharmacokinetics, biodistribution, and dose calculations. Moreover, new approaches will be discussed for new possible uses in both diagnosis and treatment to lessen the possible hazardous side effects. Basic, practical, and clinical applications will be presented in an easy and applied manner.

Interestingly, new techniques and new applications will be addresses especially in the area of the development of monoclonal antibodies (MoAbs) in radioscintigraphy of tumors. The use of nanostechnology enhance the efficacy of radiopharmaceuticals and improve the selectivity and pharmacokinetic properties.

Introducing your Author Service Manager

Mr. Mateo Pulko

As an Author Service Manager my responsibilities include monitoring and facilitating all publishing activities for authors and editors. From chapter submission and review, to approval and revision, copyediting and design, until final publication, I work closely with authors and editors to ensure a simple and easy publishing process. I maintain constant and effective communication with authors, editors and reviewers, which allows for a level of personal support that enables contributors to fully commit and concentrate on the chapters they are writing, editing, or reviewing. I assist authors in the preparation of their full chapter submissions and track important deadlines and ensure they are met. I help to coordinate internal processes such as linguistic review, and monitor the technical aspects of the process. As an ASM I am also involved in the acquisition of editors. Whether that be identifying an exceptional author and proposing an editorship collaboration, or contacting researchers who would like the opportunity to work with IntechOpen, I establish and help manage author and editor acquisition and contact.
