Abstract

A comparison of Technetium-99m and Fluorine-18 properties is carried out. Availability of both radionuclides is described. Radiation doses by their use in SPECT and PET procedures are analysed. Supply and costs of Technetium-99m and Fluorine-18 are compared. Various compounds of these radionuclides used in diagnosis by PET and SPECT are listed. Technetium-99 will continue as a main radionuclide used in diagnostic procedures in foreseeable future.
