When legislation gets in the way of science
In the next few years, PET imaging will have great advances due to the development and production of new tracers (read more in How many PET tracers do you need?). However, the process of approving a new tracer is not simple and can be a problem for scientists. Moreover, the cost of such production means that countries with less financial freedom are doomed to have only standard tracers. Dr. Gustav von Schulthness has spoken about this problem in ECR 2013 and it has been reported here.
