Radiopharmacy

Radiofarmàcia a Vall d'Hebron

The core of the Teaching Unit is provided by the Radiopharmacy Unit, with participation from the Nuclear Medicine and Pharmacy departments, the Laboratories and the Radiation Protection Unit.

Description

Radiopharmaceuticals are used in Nuclear Medicine as contrast liquids which are injected into patients intravenously to enable non-invasive internal observation. In this way, molecular imaging of the body or the pathology that is being studied can be obtained. Radiopharmacy as a medical specialisation therefore deals with the study of physical, pharmaceutical, chemical, biochemical and biological aspects of radiopharmaceuticals.
