Erin E. Grady, MD


Molecular imaging of infection has been part of diagnostic imaging since the early days of radiopharmaceuticals. This chapter discusses the properties of diagnostic radiopharmaceuticals 67Ga-citrate, 111In- and 99mTc-labeled leukocytes and 18F-FDG, along with when they are best deployed. Imaging of infection is best performed with 18F FDG for the majority of indications. This chapter explores the currently available means of diagnosis and best practices.
