Scientists at Harvard Medical School and MIT develop technetium-99m-methoxyisobutylnitrile, an agent to measure blood flow to the heart muscle (used in myocardial perfusion scans). Chemists at national laboratories and federally supported academic laboratories developed methods to synthesize high-specific-activity C-11- and F-18-labeled compounds for imaging neurotransmitter and other physiological activities, laying the foundation for modern molecular imaging. , microPET) is developed at UCLA by Simon Cherry.

Although the introduction of eINDs has aided in bringing new radiotracers, it is too early to determine whether the stated goal will be achieved. An academic research base is necessary to allow industry to rise to the challenge of delivering novel technology for future clinical use. For clinical trials to be successful, industry must be engaged and see a clear pathway for economic success. Industry will not develop the technology necessary to deploy the next generation of genome-based medicines unless the scientific and economic rationale has been identified by academia.

11 Data taken from a given patient at different points in time or from different angles need to be transformed so comparisons can be made. Image registration is the process by which the different measurements are integrated. 9 Introduction to the Physics of PET A radiotracer that is labeled with a positron-emitting radionuclide, such as fluorine-18, is injected into the patient undergoing a PET scan. The radionuclides then decay, emitting positrons. The resulting positrons subsequently annihilate on contact with electrons within the body (Figure 1).
