This study presents a summary of the dosimetry calculations performed for three technetium agents most commonly used in nuclear medicine diagnostic studies, namely sestamibi™, phosphonates and pertechnetate, labeled with cyclotron-produced technetium. Calculated patient doses were compared to those that would be delivered by the same radiotracers labeled with technetium obtained from a generator produced in a reactor. The main difference is that technetium from a generator is pure, i.e… CONTINUE READING

In our calculations only technetium radioisotopes ( ground and isomeric states ) were considered as they will be included in the radiotracer labeling process and will contribute to the patient dose .
The main difference is that technetium from a generator is pure , i.e. contains only ( 99m)Tc and its decay product ( 99g)Tc , while in a cyclotron a large number of other stable and radioactive isotopes are created .
