Studies to assess reproductive toxicity, mutagenesis, and carcinogenesis potential of Sodium Fluoride F 18 Injection, USP have not been performed.
The doses used in reported studies ranged from 2.7 mCi to 20 mCi (99.9 MBq to 740 MBq), with an average median dose of 10 mCi (370 MBq) and an average mean dose of 9.2 mCi (340.4 MBq). In PET imaging of bone metastases with Sodium Fluoride F 18 Injection, USP, focally increased tracer uptake is seen in both osteolytic and osteoblastic bone lesions. Negative PET imaging results with Sodium Fluoride F 18 Injection, USP do not preclude the diagnosis of bone metastases. Also, as benign bone lesions are also detected by Sodium Fluoride F 18 Injection, USP positive PET imaging results cannot replace biopsy to confirm a diagnosis of cancer.
14.2 Other Bone Disorders
The doses used in reported studies ranged from 2.43 mCi to 15 mCi (89.9 MBq to 555 MBq), with an average median dose of 8.0 mCi (296 MBq) and an average mean dose of 7.6 mCi (281.2 MBq).

Sodium Fluoride F 18 Injection, USP is supplied in a multiple-dose Type 1 glass vial with elastomeric stopper and aluminum crimp seal containing between 740 and 22,200 MBq/mL (20-600 mCi/mL) of no-carrier-added sodium fluoride F 18, at the EOS reference time, in aqueous 0.9% sodium chloride solution. The total volume and total radioactivity per vial are variable. Each vial is enclosed in a shielded container of appropriate thickness. The product is available in a 25 mL vial configuration with a variable fill volume. The NDC number is: 13267-542-42.
Store at 25°C (77°F) in a shielded container; excursions permitted to 15-30°C (59-86°F). Use the solution within 12 hours of the EOS reference time.
Receipt, transfer, handling, possession, or use of this product is subject to the radioactive material regulations and licensing requirements of the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission, Agreement States or Licensing States as appropriate.
Encourage patients to drink at least 500 mL of water prior to drug administration.
17.2 Post-study Voiding
To help protect themselves and others in their environment, patients should take the following precautions for 12 hours after injection: whenever possible, use a toilet and flush several times after each use; wash hands thoroughly after each voiding or fecal elimination. If blood, urine or feces soil clothing, wash the clothing separately.
