Abstract

The goal of this research is to develop 64Cu radiolabeled somatostatin-receptor ligands for position emission tomography (PET) imaging and radiotherapy of cancer. Copper-64 radiopharmaceuticals have been used as PET imaging agents for various diseases because of the favorable decay characteristics of 64Cu (t1/2 = 12.7 h; β+ (17.8%); β- (38.4%)).
