Desirable physical properties of Radio Pharmaceuticals?
It says Desirable Physical properties, half life comes under Biological properties i think correct me if im wrong ? Asked by Francene Shellhammer 1 year ago.

Physical properties are not a finite list we can pick and choose from, although there are several properties that can be applied, such as radiance and density. Radiopharmacology is important in radioactive treatment. The kind of properties I would think would be important would be, here's just two: density and radiance. Obviously if technetium doesn't have a great enough density to withstand the conditions of the body, it will not stay in one place very well, which can make it difficult for tracking (no worries with that metal, though). Radiance is important as a physical property because the level of radiation that is used in the body can be important, because too much radiation can hurt a person, and not enough won't do the job right. Answered by Jeannetta Enwright 1 year ago.

Desirable half life? Desirable organ / system specificity? Desirable handling characteristics? EDIT: Radioactive half life *not* elimination half life. Tc 99 has a half life of 212000 years as compared to Tc 99m which has a half life of 6 hours. Which is more desirable? Answered by Cecily Etzel 1 year ago.

What are some of the characteristics that make technetium-99m such a useful radioisotope for diagnostic purposes in the medical field? Asked by Tianna Dornier 1 year ago.

Technetium-99m is a metastable isotope, so you can consider it as a pure gamma-emitting isotope, which is good for diagnostic use due to the low absorbed dose it releases in the human body. The gamma rays have an energy of 140 KeV, optimal to be detected by the gamma-camera (the detector used in nuclear medicine) and quite easy to be shielded to avoid useless irradiation. Technetium-99m's half-life is 6.01h: this amount of time allows to obtain diagnostic information but doesn't cause radioactivity to persist for too much time. It can be obtain easily by a Mo-99/Tc-99m generator, which consist in a chromatographic column that can be eluated with saline solution and produces sodium pertechnetate that can be used to label molecules with simple labeling reactions.
