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.
