The tumor-positive imaging with high sensitivity and specificity was useful in primary tumor and recurrences and metastases. The 99mTc labeled myocardial imaging agents are easily available and stable and the radiochemical purity is high. 99mTc is the preferred choice in routine works because its physical properties. The preparation, quality control, mechanism of accumulation and the clinical use of 99mTc-sestamibi, 99mTc-tetrofosmin, 99mTc-furifosmin, and 99mTc-N-NOET were reviewed.

Key Word: 99mTc-sestamibi; 99mTc-tetrofosmin; 99mTc-furifosmin; 99mTc-N-NOET; tumor imaging
