Fluorine in Pharmaceutical and Medicinal ChemistryFrom Biophysical Aspects to Clinical Applications

Fluorine chemistry is an increasing zone of analysis that's attracting overseas curiosity, as a result of the influence of fluorine in drug discovery and in medical and molecular imaging (e. g. puppy, MRI). Many researchers and lecturers are coming into this sector of analysis, whereas scientists in commercial and scientific environments also are ultimately uncovered to fluorine chemistry by utilizing fluorinated compounds for imaging.

Modern SPECT equipment is available with an integrated x-ray CT scanner. Molecular imaging with SPECT/CT seems to be a complete reversal of traditional SPECT imaging, because newly developed SPECT tracers are target specific. , for tumor imaging, infection (leukocyte) imaging, thyroid imaging, bone imaging, cardiac imaging, brain imaging] [36]. It is interesting to compare briefly the two main techniques used in nuclear medicine. PET offers imaging characteristics substantially superior to those of SPECT, resulting in higher diagnostic accuracy.

These appear as dark lines that radiate away from sharp corners. 2. Partial volume effect. This appears as “blurring” over sharp edges. , cartilage). 3. Noise artifact. This appears as graining on the image and is caused by a low signal/noise ratio. This occurs most commonly when a thin slice is used. 4. Motion artifact. This is seen as blurring and/or streaking, which is caused by movement of the object being imaged. DIAGNOSTIC IMAGING TECHNOLOGIES 21 5. Beam hardening. This can give a “cupped” appearance.

2 CT, MR, and PET Imaging in External Beam Radiation Therapy External beam radiation therapy is a treatment approach that has been used in the radiation oncology field since the discovery of x-rays. The radiation beams (electrons or photons) are currently generated in linear accelerator (LINAC) machines. Electrons are extracted from a metallic filament by thermionic emission and then accelerated in a waveguide up to a desired energy. Magnetic fields are used for beam stirring. In modern multienergy machines, the electron beam that exits the horizontal waveguide is bent vertically down (90 or 270◦ ) in a magnetic field, then hits a scattering foil used to flatten the cross-sectional beam profile, which otherwise will have a Gaussian-like shape.
