Optimization and assessment of quantitative 124I imaging on a Philips Gemini dual GS PET/CT system.

Abstract:

PURPOSE: Quantitative (124)I PET imaging is challenging as (124)I has a complex decay scheme. In this study the performance of a Philips Gemini dual GS PET/CT system was optimized and assessed for (124)I. METHODS: The energy window giving the maximum noise equivalent count rate (NECR) and NEMA 2001-NU2 image quality were measured. The activity concentration (AC) accuracy of images calibrated using factors from (18)F and (124)I decaying source measurements were investigated. RESULTS: The energ...
