The availability of several radioisotopes of arsenic allows for their use as tracers in biochemical, environmental and medical applications. The versatility of arsenic to be incorporated into various chemical structures, and the existence of a wide array of arsenic compounds with established chemistries, permit the synthesis of radiopharmaceuticals with potential utility in therapy and diagnosis of numerous disease states. The current goals of several investigators are to establish methods of routine production and purification of selected arsenic radioisotopes, and to develop synthetic pathways for labeling compounds useful in medical and toxicological research.
