The United States Pharmacopeia (USP) has developed a compilation of standards of quality, testing, and procedures to help maintain and improve health and promote optimal healthcare delivery for patients. Three relatively new chapters (797, 821, and 823) specifically address nuclear medicine and positron emission tomography (PET) environments. There was a full-day seminar on this subject at the 2008 Society of Nuclear Medicine (SNM) conference. In this program, two presenters from the seminar provide an overview of the USP and its impact on nuclear medicine and PET.
