Radiopharmaceuticals and FDA: A clinician's perspective

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

1 Scopus citations


Since 1975, the Food and Drug Administration has been primarily responsible for the regulation of all radiopharmaceuticals. The process of new drug approval for radiopharmaceuticals differs from that for any other class of drugs. The slow approval of new radiopharmaceuticals arises from deficiencies in the actions of FDA, radiopharmaceutical manufacturers, and nuclear medicine practitioners.
