Quantification of flow in a dynamic phantom using Rb81-Kr81m, and a Nal detector.

Abstract

Blood flow can be measured by monitoring the count rate of Krypton-81m after its parent, Rubidium-81 (a potassium analogue), has been deposited in the tissue. The steady-state Kr-81m count rate reflects both production by decay of Rb-81 and washout due to blood flow. Its use is theoretically superior to that of Xenon-133 for quantification of blood flow (cc… (More)
