  Abstract:
  Detection of inflammation/infection still remains great clinical problem. That is why nuclear medicine procedures still play a significant role regarding this issue. There has been attempts for detection of infection/inflammation using 67Ga-citrate, 99mTc/111 In labeled white blood cells, 99mTc/111In labeled human immunoglobulin, 99mTc labeled antigranulocyte antibodies (whole or fragments), 99mTc labeled antibiotic, 99mTc nanocolloid as well as different other radiopharmaceuticals. However, there has not been discovered the ideal one. Recently, 18F-FDG PET begins to play a significant role.
