Wide-Range Neutron Counting for Yield Prediction of PET Agents in Cyclotron Irradiations

As PET is moving into the clinical setting, the instrumentation from yesterday's research laboratory is being pressed into routine use in a setting which is intolerant of any unreliability. At the University of Wisconsin, a system of three neutron detectors has been developed to asses the progress of target irradiations in real time. The triad of detectors… (More)
