TUTORIAL: 1 CEU CREDIT
This tutorial gives an overview of Mechanisms of Localization of Radiopharmaceuticals.  After completing this tutorial, attendees will be able to

  1. Better understand how different radiopharmaceuticals work as imaging agents.
  2. List and give examples of the eight classical mechanisms of localization of radiopharmaceuticals
  3. Give examples of the mechanisms associated with the newer radiopharmaceuticals, e.g., metabolic trapping, receptor binding, and antigen-antibody reactions
  4. State the uptake ratios and excretion rates, e.g., the percentage of each of the renal imaging agents cleared by filtration and secretion as well as the amount bound to the tubules
  5. Describe an antigen-antibody reaction and the part it plays in the uptake of radiolabeled monoclonal antibodies by specific types of malignant tumors
  6. State legal particle size requirements for those preparations containing labeled particles and the optimal number of particles to be injected
