The Society of Nuclear Imaging in Drug Development (SNIDD) is an all volunteer, educational organization which has the goal of increasing the appropriate use of non-invasive, imaging technology as tools in drug research and development

PET Centers that use [F-18]Fluorodeoxyglucose (FDG)

PET Centers that use 6-[F-18]fluoro-L-DOPA

FDG is widely used in the assessment of cancer and other diseases.

F-dopa is used in the diagnosis and evaluation of patients with Parkinson's disease. 18 F-dopa - PET is the most commonly applied radiotracer for the study of presynaptic dopaminergic function in the basal ganglia in Parkinsonism
