Radionuclides used in nuclear medicine

In summary, radionuclides are radioactive elements used in nuclear medicine to diagnose and treat medical conditions. They are administered to patients through injection, ingestion, or inhalation and emit gamma rays and/or positrons, which can be detected by specialized imaging equipment. The benefits of using radionuclides include their ability to target specific organs or tissues in the body and their short half-lives, but there is a small risk of radiation exposure. Some common radionuclides used in nuclear medicine include technetium-99m, iodine-131, and fluorine-18.
