BACKGROUND Impure positron emitters have physical characteristics that degrade image quality compared to conventional positron emitters like 18F. Two impure positron emitters with potentially interesting applications are 124I and 86Y. The degradation in image quality due to the imperfection of these isotopes is quantified for a human three-dimensional (3-D) positron emission tomography (PET) system. An acquisition protocol to obtain similar image quality as for 18F imaging is determined by… CONTINUE READING
