62cu-ethylglyoxal bis(thiosemicarbazone) - a radiopharmaceutical composed of the nonspecific perfusion agent ethylglyoxal bis(thiosemicarbazone) (ets) linked to the beta-emitting, radioisotope copper cu 62, with potential tumor imaging activity upon positron emitting tomography (pet). Upon injection, copper cu 62-ets distributes to various organs, especially the kidneys and the myocardium. Upon pet imaging, tumor blood flow can be visualized and the efficacy of antineoplastic and anti-angiogenic chemotherapeutics can be assessed. Cu62-ets has a short half life of 9.74 minutes. Ets has an enhanced hyperemic response compared to other perfusion agents. Also see copper cu 62 ethylglyoxal bis(thiosemicarbazone)
