Lessons From the Tc-99m Shortage: Implications of Substituting Tl-201 for Tc-99m Single-Photon Emission Computed Tomography

TLDR
In this single-center study, the use of Tl-201 during the Tc-99m shortage was associated with an increase in downstream testing, cost, and patient radiation exposure, but these findings may not be generalizable to other centers.

Analysis of Mo-99 production as function of CAMOLYP reactor power

CAMOLYP or critical assembly for molly production is a nuclear reactor based on mixed uranium thorium fuels, which is currently being developed in BATAN Yogyakarta. This study aims to know how much

Automated synthesis of [68Ga]oxine, improved preparation of 68Ga-labeled erythrocytes for blood-pool imaging, and preclinical evaluation in rodents.

TLDR
An updated method for the preparation of 68Ga-labeled erythrocytes and their preliminary use in rodent blood pool imaging is described and a novel automated synthesis of [68Ga]oxine using a 68Ga/68Ge generator and automated synthesis module is reported.

It’s about time we think about lowering radiation dose in obese patients too

TLDR
Medical technology has advanced at a rapid pace, particularly, the diagnostic imaging tools relied upon daily to care for patients, and one particular struggle in reducing radiation exposure is obtaining quality images in obese patients at a lower radiation dose.

Imaging study of using radiopharmaceuticals labeled with cyclotron-produced 99mTc

TLDR
The aim of the present work is to provide a comprehensive and quantitative analysis of image quality for CPTc, and to create dose-based limits of these parameters for producing clinically acceptable C PTc.

Novel approaches to target infectious diseases : the utility of Auger electrons and scFvs for imaging and control

TLDR
The novel anti-LAM scFv generated in this study combined with the potential toxic effects of Auger electrons could provide a new avenue for the treatment and diagnosis of tuberculosis.

A triple-head solid state camera for cardiac single photon emission tomography (SPECT)

The CardiusTM-3 (C-3) camera is a triple-head small field-of-view camera dedicated to cardiac SPECT imaging. It is built on Digirad's solid-state detector technology with 6mm x 6mm CsI:Tl crystals.

ASNC IMAGING GUIDELINES FOR NUCLEAR CARDIOLOGY PROCEDURES Single photon-emission computed tomography

TLDR
The current document is an update of an earlier version of single photon emission tomography guidelines that was developed by the American Society of Nuclear Cardiology, and should not be used in clinical studies until they have been reviewed and approved by qualified physicians and technologists from their own particular institutions.

Prospective multicenter evaluation of rapid, gated SPECT myocardial perfusion upright imaging

TLDR
Rapid, gated rest–stress myocardial perfusion upright SPECT imaging may be achieved without compromising perfusion and function information.
