Nuclear medicine is a medical specialty devoted to treat or diagnose diseases in a non-invasive approach. This technique requires a compound (radiopharmaceutical) that contains a radioisotope. After the injection of this compound, a 3D image of the studied tissue can be obtained due to the specific accumulation of the radiopharmaceutical. In our group, we have been developing radiocompounds based on the Tc-99m isotope with high specific activity for the detection of diseases such as cancer.
