Biodistribution of tantalum-178 A short-lived radiopharmaceutical for blood pool imaging


178Ta is a short lived radionuclide (half life=9.3 min), which results in favorable radiation exposure compared to 99mTc (half life 6 h). The energy spectrum of 178Ta consists of imageable photons in the 55–65 keV (61.2%) and 93 keV (33.7%) range but also 6% of disintegrations result in photons with energies greater than 500 keV. These high energy photons… (More)
