Positron emission tomography (PET) is a very powerful diagnostic technique routinely used in a variety of medical applications. This review article summarises the developments of using microreactor technology for the radiochemical synthesis of PETagents. The advantages of manufacturing these imaging drugs using microreactors are described, and a review of reactions conducted to date is outlined.
