  Z731498 PET Chemistry: The Driving Force in Molecular Imaging The incessant progress in the comprehension of molecular processes of disease formation and progression is accompanied by an increasing importance of biomedical molecular imaging methods. PET, a nuclear medical imaging modality, is ideally suited to produce such kinds of images by use of positron-emitting chemical entities. The purpose of this workshop was to discuss and overview applications and technologies in the area of PET chemistry. The book provides the reader with state-of-the-art information on the different applications of PET isotopes, such as F-18, C-11, Ga-68, Cu-64, Y-86, Br-76, Br-77 and I-124, and their impact on molecular imaging. New technical features such as microwaves, microreactors and modules for the synthesis of new PET tracers are discussed.
