This review examines several classes of radiolabeled agents, including analogs localizing in somatostatin, benzodiazepine and dopamine receptors; analogs of progesterone and estrogen; and agents localizing in lesions with hypoxia. It concludes the status of agents advocated for detecting angiogenesis and inflammation. The current clinical status of these agents, and their potential roles in diagnosis and treatment are discussed.
