1. A review of NIST primary activity standards for 18F: 1982 to 2013
Series: Journal of Research (NIST JRES)
Published: 8/27/2014
Authors: Denis E Bergeron, Jeffrey T Cessna, Bert M Coursey, Ryan P Fitzgerald, Brian Edward Zimmerman
Abstract: The new NIST activity standardization for 18F differs from results obtained between 1998 and 2008 by 4 %. The new results are considered to be very reliable; they are based on a battery of robust primary measurement techniques and bring the NIST sta ...

2. Dose calibrator manufacturer-dependent bias in assays of 123I
Published: 3/26/2014
Authors: Denis E Bergeron, Jeffrey T Cessna, Daniel Benjamin Golas, Rheannan K Young, Brian Edward Zimmerman
Abstract: Calibration factors for commercial ionization chambers (i.e. dose calibrators) were determined for a solution of 123I; the activity was based on the 1976 NBS standard. A link between the NIST standard and the International Reference System (SIR) was ...

3. A New NIST Primary Standardization of 18F
Published: 2/1/2014
Authors: Ryan P Fitzgerald, Brian Edward Zimmerman, Denis E Bergeron, Jeffrey T Cessna, Leticia S Pibida, Denise S Moreira
Abstract: A new primary standardization of 18F by NIST is reported. The standard is based on live-timed beta- gamma anticoincidence counting with confirmatory measurements by three other methods: (i) liquid scintillation (LS) counting using CIEMAT/NIST 3H e ...

4. Calibration of traceable solid mock I-131 phantoms used in an international SPECT image quantification comparison
Series: Journal of Research (NIST JRES)
Report Number: 118.017
Published: 8/15/2013
Authors: Brian Edward Zimmerman, Leticia S Pibida, Lynne Emily King, Denis E Bergeron, Jeffrey T Cessna, Matthew Merril Mille
Abstract: The International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) has organized an international comparison to assess Single Photon Emission Computed Tomography (SPECT) image quantification capabilities in 12 countries. Iodine-131 was chosen as the radionuclide for ...

5. Current status and future needs for standards of radionuclides used in Positron Emission Tomography
Published: 9/23/2012
Author: Brian Edward Zimmerman
Abstract: Positron Emission Tomography is being increasingly used as a quantitative technique for detecting disease and monitoring patient progress during treatment. In order to ensure the validity of the quantitative information derived from the imaging data, ...

6. Results of an international comparison for the activity measurement of 177Lu
Published: 3/6/2012
Authors: Brian Edward Zimmerman, Denis E Bergeron, Jeffrey T Cessna
Abstract: An international Key Comparison of 177Lu has recently been carried out. Twelve laboratories performed assays for radioactivity content on aliquots of a common master solution of 177Lu, leading to eleven results submitted for entry into the Key Compar ...

7. The effect of impurities on calculated activity in the triple-to-double coincidence ratio liquid scintillation method
Published: 3/4/2012
Authors: Denis E Bergeron, Ryan P Fitzgerald, Brian Edward Zimmerman, Jeffrey T Cessna
Abstract: In the triple-to-double coincidence ratio (TDCR) method of liquid scintillation counting, unaccounted or improperly accounted impurities can result in lower-than-expected or higher-than-expected recovered activities, depending on the counting efficie ...

8. Uncertainty determination for activity measurements by means of the TDCR method and the CIEMAT/NIST efficiency tracing technique
Published: 3/4/2012
Authors: K Kossert, R. Broda, P Cassette, G Ratel, Brian Edward Zimmerman
Abstract: Liquid scintillation (LS) counting is a very powerful technique for the activity determination of a number of radionuclides. In radionuclide metrology, the TDCR method and the CIEMAT/NIST efficiency tracing technique are widely used in many laborator ...

9. Investigation into the Standardization of Tc-99
Published: 7/30/2010
Authors: Lizbeth Laureano-Perez, Ronald Colle, Ryan P Fitzgerald, Brian Edward Zimmerman, Lonnie Talmadge Cumberland
Abstract: The standardization of 99Tc by several primary methods was investigated. This was performed to support a new 99Tc transfer standard that has been developed and will be disseminated by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) as Stan ...

10. Development of a traceable calibration methodology for solid Ge-68/Ga-68 sources used as a calibration surrogate for F-18 in radionuclide activity calibrations
Published: 3/31/2010
Authors: Brian Edward Zimmerman, Jeffrey T Cessna
Abstract: We have developed a methodology for calibrating 68Ge radioactivity content in a commercially-available calibration source for dose calibrators in a way that is traceable to the national standard. Additionally, the source was cross-calibrated for equi ...
