Novel compounds that find use as imaging agents within nuclear medicine applications (PET imaging) for imaging of cardiac innervation are disclosed. These PET based radiotracers may exhibit increased stability, decreased NE release (thereby reducing side effects), improved quantitative data, and/or high affinity for VMAT over prior radiotracers. Methods of using the compounds to image cardiac innervation are also provided. In some instances the compounds are developed by derivatizing certain compounds with 18F in a variety of positions: aryl, alkyl, a keto, benzylic, beta-alkylethers, gamma-propylalkylethers and beta-proplylalkylethers. Alternatively or additionally, a methyl group a is added to the amine, and/or the catechol functionality is either eliminated or masked as a way of making these compounds more stable.


The present invention describes processes for the preparation of a lipid blend and a uniform filterable phospholipid suspension containing the lipid blend, such suspension being useful as an ultrasound contrast agent.

Techniques for monitoring a pharmaceutical manufacturing process and making determinations regarding the release as of radiopharmaceuticals to health care providers. A data processing system collects data across multiple batches of radiopharmaceuticals, across multiple entities, and/or across multiple stages of the manufacturing process, processes the data, and provides feedback to entities involved in the manufacturing process. In scenarios where quality assurance tests are conducted, data is collected from radiopharmaceutical diopharmaceutical products before they are shipped, and the data is analyzed to provide the recipients with an indication of whether the radiopharmaceutical products satisfy quality assurance standards. Techniques for analyzing information about a batch manufacturing process and, when a problem occurred during a manufacture of a batch, determining whether to continue to manufacture a next batch in time for delivering and administering to a patient. The detected problem may be investigated and remedied before or during the synthesis of the next batch.
