Applications: H2O18 is used in positron emission tomography (PET) as a precursor to fluorodeoxyglucose (FDG). H2O18 is blasted with hydrogen ions to create fluorine-18, which is then synthesized into FDG and injected into a patient. Images of specific organs can then be viewed using PET. Also used to measure energy expenditure in humans.
