Mechanism of function:1. They emit tractable radiation which helps them to use asprobes.2. High energy radiation emitted by nuclides can be used to killharmful cancerous cells.

Techniques based on radioisotopes:1. X-ray2. CT scan3. PET scan

The half-life of radio-isotopes used in medicine:1. Tc-99 = 6 hrsIt is used to image heart muscle, lungs, liver, and brain

2. Mb-99 = 66 hrsIt produces Tc-99

3. Co-60 = 5.26 yrsUsed in cancer therapy

4. I-131 = 8.02 daysUsed in thyroid therapy
