SPECT

SPECT

The majority of nuclear medicine imaging done today uses single-photon emission computed tomography, or SPECT imaging, which relies on gamma-emitting radioisotopes.

Radiopharmaceuticals are radioactive prescription drug products that are internally administered and intended for use in the diagnosis and treatment of disease. The term "radiopharmaceutical" also applies to non-radioactive reagent kits and radionuclide generators intended for use in the preparation of radioactive drugs and radioactive biological drug products.

Triad Isotopes, Inc. is your trusted source for the broad range of radiopharmaceutical products essential to SPECT imaging. For a complete for list of FDA-approved radiopharmaceuticals available through Triad Isotopes, click here.
