Some sites use the same dose for all patients whereas many scale the dose with patient’s weight – there are few definitive data on this and the optimum protocol will depend on the scanner used. As scan times have decreased, there will always be at least two or three highly radioactive patients waiting to be scanned, and purpose designed waiting rooms are therefore required that incorporate a significant amount of radiation shielding. The increased patient throughput can also potentially lead to high radiation doses to radiographers who should avoid close proximity with active patients.
The decision whether to use contrast is an issue of debate, with some advocating the use of intravenous contrast but perhaps slowing the rate of injection to avoid high density in the arterial contrast phase, and others advocating the use of low-density or negative oral contrast. TECHNICAL PROBLEMS AND SOME SOLUTIONS 1 Injection artefacts: scan injection site when axillary uptake seen 2 Breathing artifacts, ‘banana sign’, ‘mushrooms on the diaphragm’: quiet breathing or end expiration during CT 3 Misregistration: scroll up and down or forwards and backwards on adjacent slices to ‘match’ lesions on PET + CT 4 Movement artifacts (especially brain scanning): always check scan prior to leaving department, consider acquiring brain scans as series of static frames and reject those with movement 5 Attenuation artefacts with contrast media, implants, pacemakers, and prostheses: view nonattenuation-corrected scan data Recent surgery or radiotherapy may give rise to inflammatory uptake and a good history can help to spot potential sources of false-positive uptake such as these.
Cardiac studies are usually performed as simple static emission scans. Higher resolution and more accurate quantitative values can be obtained by performing gated emission scans. The cardiac cycle is divided into ~8 separate images, each of which can be processed in the same way as a static cardiac scan. Estimates of wall motion and wall thickening can be made from gated cardiac studies if the acquisition time is extended to account for the smaller number of counts in each image. [11C]METHIONINE Accumulation of [11C]L-methionine into tumor tissue is believed to be due to increased transport of amino acids and incorporation of amino acids into protein fractions, although it is not clear which of these mechanisms is predominant in PET tumor imaging.
