AbstractThere are still some physicians (hopefully none in Japan) who think that nuclear medicine is the diagnosis of thyroid disease with "Iodine Atomic Cocktails." Just before World War II some therapeutic physicians might have said that all nuclear medicine was the application of radiophosphorus to the treatment of blood disorders; but radicsodium was probably the first isotope to be used after the invention of the cyclotron with the idea of a medical application. This was Hamilton's work in Berkeley, California soon after the development of the cyclotron in Berkeley, carbon-11 and carbon-14 were being specifically manufactured with a biochemical application clearly envisaged by Kamen.
