The process of converting 2D projections into a 3D image is called?
When a positron interacts with the electron and their masses are the same it creates?
The annihilation process
What type of image acquisition is displayed below?
static (image of rib cage with dark spots)
Which of the following is not a part of the gamma camera?
Which of the following would not be a shape of a photomultiplier tube?
This is a sensitive instrument with a long response time which makes it best for measuring high doses. It also gives an accurate exposure rate.
Portable Ionization Chamber
__________ imaging records how the radiopharmaceutical administered to the patient changes over time.
In a gamma camera this is used to select energies that will be used for the image ________.
Pulse Height Analyzer
PET is different from traditional nuclear medicine because it uses short-lived ___________ forms of common organic elements tagged to tracers to image.
What are the QC procedures performed on a dose calibrator for Constancy?
What are the QC procedures performed on a dose calibrator for Geometry?
What are the QC procedures performed on a dose calibrator for Accuracy?
What are the QC procedures performed on a dose calibrator for Linearity?
Why is Constancy done?
Determines the reproducibility of measurements of a source of known activity
Why is Geometry done?
The effect of sample volume and configuration on the measurement of sample's activity
Why is Linearity done?
How accurately it measures activities over a wide range from millicuries and microcuries
Why is Accuracy done?
Tests the ability to provide true measurement of activity of different gamma energies. Use 2 different long lived energies.
Visualization of the kidneys on a 99mTc-MDP scan is considered:
abnormal, because 99mTc-MDP is excreted via the bowel
In the evaluation of primary bone neoplasms, bone scans:
are used to detect disease elsewhere
A patient is entering the osseous phase of a routine three-phase bone scan. The
begin to take 2- to 3-hour delayed images
