Rapid preparation and quality control method for technetium-99m-2-methoxy isobutyl isonitrile (technetium-99m-sestamibi).
The combined use of the microwave oven heating method and the quick quality control system will facilitate the rapid, emergency use of 99mTc-sestamibi and eliminate the need for advance preparation of multiple kits each day.
Evaluation of heparin and anticoagulant citrate dextrose in the preparation of technetium-99m-red blood cells with UltraTag RBC kit.
The total absorber thickness between the capsule and the top of the phantom is considerably different for the three devices, accounting for the attenuation differences among the three.

This study was undertaken to compare the standard TP method with two other proposed single-strip chromatography systems: Whatman 17 Chr paper with ethyl acetate (THE AUTHORS) and Gelman Solvent Saturation Pads paper with ether (GE), and found that the GE method has the most clear separation of lipophilic 99Tcm-exametazime from other radiochemical impurities and offers the quickest RCP analysis with relatively accurate results.
An alternative method for rapid preparation of 99Tcm-sestamibi.
The use of an instant hot water machine not only avoids those problems associated with the microwave heating method, but also provides a rapid, efficient and relatively simple option for preparation of 99Tcm-sestamibi.
