Biomedical Applications

Isotopes are an essential part of modern medicine. During the 20th century, close collaboration between medical and isotope scientists led to several powerful diagnostic tools based on stable and radioactive isotopes. These applications have one common feature: all involve the administration of an artificially prepared isotopic tracer.

Tracer techniques, however, only scratch the surface of what is possible with isotopes. In the earth and ecological sciences, the most powerful applications of isotopes involve high precision measurements of variations in the relative abundance of stable (or nearly stable) isotopes naturally present in a system, variations that arise from system processes acting on differences in the physicochemical properties of isotopes of the same element. As these properties are identical in living and nonliving systems, isotopic measurements are expected to be equally informative and transformative-in both. Current research on medical applications of stable isotopes vindicates this assumption.
