Absorbed radiation doses to major human organs after intravenous bolus administration of 2-[(18)F]fluoro-2-deoxy-d-glucose (FDG) were reviewed. Absorbed doses were calculated using the medical internal radiation dose (MIRD) formalism from experimental activity-time curves. Thirty patients (22 with macroscopic lung tumour and 8 without observable disease) were investigated using a state-of-the-art combined positron emission tomography/computer tomography system (Siemens Biograph 64). Each… CONTINUE READING
