Standardization of FDG PET-CT is becoming a reality, at least in centers that perform clinical trials. Non-FDG radiopharmaceuticals used with PET/CT are far from standard in clinical trials and in clinical use. This article only gives an example of different protocols and indications related to the availability of different radiopharmaceuticals. This scenario will be probably the reality in the near future in many centers throughout the world. Starting from the FDG experience, it will be easy to implement standards for acquisition and interpretation of PET/CT studies with other radiopharmaceuticals.
