The radionuclide 86Y potentially allows for the precise assessment of tissue radioactivity biodistribution and, thus, extrapolation of a therapeutic dose of 90Y-labeled compounds. A method to obtain quantitative images from 86Y-PET measurements after a background correction and a recalibration is presented. Cylinder and body phantom measurements with 18 F and 86Y using an ECAT EXACT HR+ tomograph were performed in 2D mode. A second-order series expansion is used to correct for the background of… Expand
Feasibility of 90Y TOF PET-based dosimetry in liver metastasis therapy using SIR-Spheres
TLDR
Preliminary results on a patient demonstrated a high-resolution absorbed dose distribution with a clear correlation with tumour response and supports the implementation of 90Y PET in selective internal radiation therapy of the liver. Expand

TLDR
The methods presented in this overview aim to overcome the challenges associated with the decay characteristics of 124I and 86Y with careful application of the presented correction methods can allow for quantitatively accurate images with improved image contrast. Expand
Assessment of a fully 3D Monte Carlo reconstruction method for preclinical PET with iodine-124.
TLDR
It is found that the use of an MC SM including a thorough modelling of the detector response and physical effects in a uniform water-equivalent phantom was efficient to get reasonable quantitative accuracy in homogeneous and heterogeneous phantoms. Expand
PET imaging with the non-pure positron emitters: (55)Co, (86)Y and (124)I.
TLDR
PET image quality and quantitation for all isotopes were significantly affected by PGCs and the effect of PGC-correction and TOF-reconstruction improved image quality in isolated lesions but worsened the accuracy of quantitation and uniformity in homogeneous activity distributions. Expand
Assessment of the short-lived non-pure positron-emitting nuclide 120I for PET imaging
TLDR
The data show that 120I of high radionuclidic purity can be regarded as a suitable nuclide for the PET imaging of radioiodine-labelled pharmaceuticals. Expand
Acquisition settings for PET of 124I administered simultaneously with therapeutic amounts of 131I.
TLDR
Acquisition in 3D mode with a 425- to 650-keV or 460- to 562-kev window leads to the highest image quality and contrast when imaging 124I in the presence of large amounts of 131I using a standard clinical PET scanner. Expand

TLDR
The study demonstrated that the shape effect was negligible and, therefore, was in agreement with theoretical expectations, and in contradiction to the simulation results, the observed spill-in effect was unexpectedly small. Expand
Image-Quality Assessment for Several Positron Emitters Using the NEMA NU 4-2008 Standards in the Siemens Inveon Small-Animal PET Scanner
TLDR
With the intrinsic spatial resolution (≈1.5 mm) of this latest-generation small-animal PET scanner, the finite positron range has become the limiting factor for the overall spatial resolution and activity recovery in small structures imaged with 124I and 68Ga. Expand
Physics of pure and non-pure positron emitters for PET: a review and a discussion
TLDR
The present complications arising from the prompt gammas are discussed, and the scientific literature on prompt gamma correction is reviewed to assure acceptable image quality. Expand

TLDR
A Monte Carlo program based on SimSET (Simulation System for Emission Tomography) to model cascade gamma rays in PET imaging and results will be used for the development of correction methods in (86)Y PET. Expand
