This may occur, for example, when imaging with the arms at the patient’s side, and in very-low-dose protocols. Solutions therefore can be found in increasing the dose and in imaging with the arms above the patient’s head. If this is not possible, placing the arms over the abdomen will remove the longest beam paths.

Diazepam may work by an indirect effect on the sympathetic nervous system rather than as a muscle relaxant, to reduce uptake in patients with suspected cervical or mediastinal disease. Various methods can be employed to reduce physiologic uptake. For brain scans, inject in a quiet darkened room. Patients should relax through the uptake period to avoid activation of the motor and occipital cortex. Sedation and general anesthesia should ideally be avoided during the uptake period in brain scanning as it suppresses cerebral FDG uptake.

G. tumor margins) are also available for exporting data to radiotherapy planning systems. 3. Positrons from a given radionuclide are emitted over a continuous range of energies, but are characterized by a maximum energy Emax. Higher-energy positrons have a longer range in tissue, however in practice the effect of positron range on spatial resolution is very small. The low-Z cyclotron-produced radionuclides – 15O, 13N, 11C, and 18F – all have high branching ratios for positron emission, however some of the higher-Z nuclides have other emissions resulting in less favorable radiation dosimetry.
