UNLABELLED This study evaluated the Pico-Count (Bioscan, Inc., Washington, DC) flow-through radioactivity detector, designed for use in PET studies of cerebral blood flow. METHODS The Pico-Count detects the two 511-keV positron annihilation photons with two bismuth germanate detectors operating in coincidence. The detectors, photomultipliers and preamps are housed within a 12 cm x 9 cm x 22 cm box, which includes 16 mm of lead shielding, to allow placement of the detector within 15 cm of the… CONTINUE READING
