The effective dose equivalent, HE, can be used as a standard radiation dose parameter in all imaging modalities that use ionizing radiation, including positron emission tomography (PET). A simplified method for evaluating approximate HE values for the positron emitters carbon 11, nitrogen 13, oxygen 15 and fluorine 18 is presented. HE values for a range of PET studies have been computed based on biodistribution data available in the scientific literature. Low-dose PET studies include a bolus… CONTINUE READING
