Researchers see many applications for zinc imaging

SNMMI SmartBrief | Jul 23, 2014

Zn-63 zinc citrate could potentially be used for imaging of patients with metabolic disorders and various cancers, according to a study in the Journal of Nuclear Medicine that also assessed the method of preparing the agent. Preclinical PET imaging revealed normal biodistribution, suggesting that Zn-63 could be used in evaluating zinc transport in diseases and the results of zinc-related therapies. While the tracer's 38.5-minute half-life carries limitations, "it is anticipated that dynamic PET imaging data may provide quantitative assessments of transport and more rapid turnover processes," researchers wrote.
