Purpose: Explaining why 90Y TOF-PET based equivalent uniform dose (EUD) using standard FDG reconstruction parameters has been shown to predict response. Methods: The hot rods insert of a Jaszczak deluxe phantom was partially filled with a 2.65 GBq 90Y - 300ml DTPA water solution resulting in a 100 Gy mean absorbed dose in the 6 sectors. A two bed 20min/position acquisition was performed on a 550ps- and on a 320ps- TOF-PET/CT and reconstructed with standard FDG reconstruction parameters…

Yttrium-90 quantitative phantom study using digital photon counting PET
The dosimetric accuracy was found to be similar to that found with no filter applied but also reduced noise, and 3 iterations with 10 subsets were found suitable for large spheres whereas 1 iteration with 30 subsets could improve dosimetry for smaller spheres.


Quantitative and Qualitative Assessment of Yttrium-90 PET/CT Imaging
The aim of this work was to image and quantify 90Y so that accurate predictions of the absorbed dose can be made and it seems advantageous to use different protocols depending on the size of the lesion.
Phantom validation of quantitative Y-90 PET/CT-based dosimetry in liver radioembolization
The results indicate that despite 90Y-PET being likely to provide high-resolution images, the 90Y low branch ratio, along with other image-degrading factors, may produce non-uniform activity maps, even in the presence of uniform activity.
A multicentre comparison of quantitative 90Y PET/CT for dosimetric purposes after radioembolization with resin microspheres
Competitive performance between GE Healthcare and Siemens ToF systems suggests suitability for quantitative analysis in a scenario analogous to that of postradioembolization imaging for treatment of liver cancer.
Feasibility of 90Y TOF PET-based dosimetry in liver metastasis therapy using SIR-Spheres
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.
A Comparison of Techniques for 90Y PET/CT Image-Based Dosimetry Following Radioembolization with Resin Microspheres
The LDM method of post-radioembolization dosimetry has the advantage of not requiring additional post-processing, and may produce a dosimetric solution that is more accurate than DPK convolution under ideal conditions; however, image noise can obscure some of the perceived benefit.
Assessment of acquisition protocols for routine imaging of Y-90 using PET/CT
Only one iteration and TOF were necessary to achieve an MDA around 1 MBq mL−1 and the most accurate localization of lesions, and the highest CNR was achieved with one iteration for both TOF and non-TOF reconstructions.
90Y TOF-PET based EUD reunifies patient survival prediction in resin and glass microspheres radioembolization of HCC tumours.
The results clearly support the fact that the activity heterogeneity observed in 90Y TOF-PET post radioembolization does not only result from statistical noise, but also reflects the actual heterogeneity of the spheres distribution.
Comparison of yttrium-90 quantitative imaging by TOF and non-TOF PET in a phantom of liver selective internal radiotherapy.
(90)Y PET imaging in liver SIRT is achievable with LYSO TOF, while BGO imaging is not feasible for dosimetry calculation.
Yttrium-90 TOF PET scan demonstrates high-resolution biodistribution after liver SIRT
Y-PET better reflects the tumour heterogeneity assessed by FDG PET/CT (a necrotic core surrounded by active tumour margins) than traditional bremsstrahlung Y-SPECT, and should contribute to increasing the accuracy of the dose distribution into the tumours and their surrounding healthy tissues.
Quantitative Comparison of PET and Bremsstrahlung SPECT for Imaging the In Vivo Yttrium-90 Microsphere Distribution after Liver Radioembolization
It is quantitatively demonstrated that the image quality of state-of-the-art PET is superior over Bremsstrahlung SPECT for the assessment of the 90Y microsphere distribution after radioembolization.
