Current status and future needs for standards of radionuclides used in Positron Emission Tomography
Brian E. Zimmerman
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, it is imperative that all of the instrumentation involved in making radioactivity measurements that are part of the imaging procedure be calibrated so as to be traceable to national or international standards. This paper reviews the current status of standards for positron emitting radionuclides and suggests needs for future work in this area.
