The addition of a coincidence detection mode to a standard dual-head detector system has resulted in the option of single-photon and annihilation coincidence detection.

Stokkel. To assess the role of FFDG imaging with a dual-head coincidence mode gamma camera (Co-PET) in identifying malignant tumors in patients with. Coincidence PET using F FDG detected the occult tumor.

A paraaortic extraadrenal abdominal PHEO was resected, resulting in resolution of her hypertension. A paraaortic extraadrenal abdominal PHEO was resected, resulting in resolution of her hypertension. In principle, a DHCI camera is a dual head scanner plus coincidence electronics circuit.

In practice, manufacturing such a system is more complicated than a simple add-on of the coincidence electronics because the camera must be able to operate in two modes: single photon imaging for planar plus SPECT and coincidence by: 4.

Methods and patients: After fasting for 6h or more, MBq of 18F-FDG were injected i.v. and 2D imaging (whole-body scan and at least a tomoscintigram) was started 45 min. later, using a PICKER CDET gamma by: 4.

Unfortunately, clinical studies in lymphoma and other cancers have already demonstrated the limitations of this technology, with 20% of lesions escaping by:   Abstract.

Objectives:Clinical tumor imaging with 18 F-FDG in PET is growing in demand. This article will provide a review of current patient preparation and imaging techniques.

The goal is to make the PET study as noninvasive as. within a single detector ring and between adjacent detector rings (through the positioning of septa between the rings), while in 3-D mode all coincidence detections in the field of view are acquired (i.e.

including oblique planes). New PET/CT scanners, particularly those with LSO or GSO crystals, only acquire images in 3-D mode. The sensitivity. Dual-head coincidence gamma camera (DHC) imaging has been proposed as a means of acquiring FDG images (5). Although DHC has been used in nuclear oncology (6, 7), little has been reported about its application in neurologic brain FDG stud-ies (8).

rapy. A year-old man with known metastatic clear cell RCC was imaged with both 18F-FDG and 18F-DCFPyL PET/CT. 18F-DCFPyL is a small molecule inhibitor of the prostate-specific membrane antigen (PSMA), a target known to be highly expressed on solid tumor neovasculature.

Relative to 18F-FDG, 18F-DCFPyL identified more lesions and demonstrated higher tumor. Abstract. Objective: Coincidence imaging enhances the potential for imaging a greater number of patients with 18 F-FDG in centers that do not have dedicated PET systems. The purpose of this study was to compare, in a clinical setting, coincidence imaging for tumor detection using 2 dual-head γ-camera systems, one equipped with a 5/8-in.

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: Dual-head coincidence gamma camera (DHC) imaging has been proposed as an alternative to dedicated ring-detector positron emission tomography (dr-PET) for clinical fluorodeoxyglucose (FDG) studies.

The purpose of this investigation was to assess the quality of DHC images in FDG studies of the human by: 2. To minimize the influence of external stimulation on the brain uptake of FDG, prior to the injection of FDG and for 30 minutes thereafter, the patient should be kept lying or sitting still in a quiet, darkened room {02} {10} {11} {92}.
