This guide is designed essentially to be of suggestions to trainee nuclear medication technicians and radiographers. it's going to even be of price to those that are already educated within the secure dealing with and use of radionuclides for imaging, as a speedy reference for regimen and non-routine nuclear drugs imaging methods. The strategies defined have been mostly constructed or changed on the Nuclear drugs division, Guy's medical institution, London, with general updates over the past 10 years. the most physique of every bankruptcy bargains with the technical elements of radionuclide imaging and every bankruptcy features a part at the prepara­ tion process for the appropriate radiopharmaceuticals used with short summaries of the purpose of any information analyses utilizing a working laptop or computer process. even supposing the equipment defined don't characterize the one technique to perform such systems, they've got all been evaluated greatly and are identified to provide passable effects. i need to list my because of all contributors of this division who've helped by means of offering suggestion, reviews and knowledge. particularly, i need to thank Dr Colin Lazarus for his aid with the radiopharmaceuticals sections. i'm so much thankful to Dr Sue Clarke and Dr Ignac Fogelman for checking the manuscripts and eventually to Professor Michael Maisey with out whose consistent encouragement and aid this paintings wouldn't have been attainable. FOREWORD the advance of nuclear drugs used to be at the beginning a gradual process.

Both curves are normalized, and the background is subtracted. 1 PATIENT PREPARATION A small number of children may need to be sedated for the imaging section of the study, if the study is to be carried out efficiently. The need for sedation should be established at the time of injection. 2 RADIOPHARMACEUTICAL AND DOSE 200 MBq 99Tc m -DMSA This is the adult dose and should be corrected on the basis of body surface area in children. The minimum dose is 37 MBq. 3 EQUIPMENT A standard or wide-field-of-view gamma camera fitted with a highresolution or general-purpose collimator is used, connected to a computer.

6. 1. Ensure patient has emptied bladder. If the patient's urine output is being recorded, then the volume of urine passed should be measured and the value entered on the patient's fluid balance chart. 2. Set clock for 10 min (or 20 min for a new transplant). 3. Ensure computer, camera and film back are set. RENAL TRANSPLANT STUDY 21 4. Give bolus injection of 99Tc m _DTPA, starting camera and computer at moment of cuff release. 5. Record first image on camera for 30 s (1). 6. At 1 min after injection, record image for 400 000 counts (2).

2. Ensure camera and film back are set (select whole body and dual intensity on the multiformatter). 3. Select scanning mode. 4. Position patient as in patient positioning. Ensure that there is a clear 1 cm gap between the base of the imaging table and the face of the collimator. ROUTINE BONE IMAGING USING A SCANNING GAMMA CAMERA 41 Position camera over patient's dorsal spine. Select the desired data density and determine the scanning speed. 5. Return camera to top of patient's head. Instruct patient to turn head to right.
