Radioligand binding in situ is the most sensitive method for detecting available receptors; the success and reliability of this approach are determined by a number of technical requirements and constraints. Based on the authors' fifteen years of experience in the field, Visualization of Receptors In Situ: Applications of Radioligand Binding explicitly details these procedures - often not encountered in the original research papers - helping the reader overcome the challenges associated with this powerful technique.
