Abstract

Myocardial perfusion studies are among the most often performedinvestigations in Nuclear Medicine. However, the developmentof radiopharmaceuticals for cardiology is an emergingdiscipline and several other radiotracers have been proven to beuseful. Although the myocardial perfusion studies have a wellestablishedrole in the management of cardiac disorders, stilla number of radiopharmaceuticals are under development fora variety of specific cardiac indications and their eventual clinicalrole remains to be seen. The paper provides a short overviewof currently used radiopharmaceuticals and potential molecularimaging radiotracers applicable in cardiology.
