On account of its sensitivity and variety of applications, PET is considered a powerful scientific and clinical tool for tracking biochemical, physiological, and pharmacological processes in the human body. Its use has intensified considerably in the last decade, and it has become an essential technique for diagnosing and staging diseases, as well as for monitoring therapy response [1][2].
This is why BV Cyclotron VU is committed to developing new tracers. Below are some of the ones we currently have under development.

Sodium Iodide [124I]
