The aim of this paper is to devote the development of new radiopharmaceuticals for nuclear medicine application and methods of quality assurance stressing the pharmaceutical aspects. Preparation, distribution, storage and use of radiopharmaceuticals involves a number of pharmaceuticals and radiation protection problems emphasized by the rapidly increasing use of this type of drug relevant for the patient, for the staff and for the environment. To study the pharmaceutical aspects of radiopharmaceuticals is important to show the possible conflict between radiation protection and pharmaceutical viewpoints. Establishment of the clear specific character of radiopharmaceuticals as a pharmaceuticals is important to assume the responsibility that all radiopharmaceuticals have satisfactory quality, e.g. by purchasing, controlling and distributing radioactive drug, suitable preparation with the low toxicity and high efficiency, free from radiochemical impurities chemical, pharmaceutical, and biological. The emphasis is given to the rules governing the manufacture of radiopharmaceuticals and the importance of specifications given by the pharmacopoeia, which are obligatory. Radiopharmaceutical's monographs describe the pharmaceuticals particulars of each radioisotope as well as relevant information on its clinical application, concerning the pharmaceutical dosage, contraindications and interference with other pharmaceuticals, quality control, pharmacokinetic data, radiation dose and valuable reference, including recommendations for storage and criteria of stability.
