Everything that we see is a shadow cast by that which we do not see.—Martin Luther King, Jr

A nuclear medicine fellow is designing a new positron emission tomography research protocol that will involve the use of a novel radionuclide. He learns from a colleague, who has just returned from a meeting of the Society of Nuclear Medicine, that the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has proposed new regulations to govern the use of radioactive compounds in medicine. Concerned that these regulations might affect his study, the fellow wants to review the FDA proposal. He accesses the society's World Wide Web site and finds online copies of all the relevant FDA documents. The fellow learns that his study will not be affected and proceeds with the development of his protocol.
