References Of Activities Injected Into Adults In Spect and Pet Imaging in Europe and Particularly in France]

The two main examinations in nuclear medicine are SPECT and PET. They make it possible to study the functioning of the organs. Its principle is based on the administration to a patient of so-called tracers doses of a radiopharmaceutical drug. In order to limit the irradiation of the patient during a diagnostic examination, nuclear medicine determines the activities to be administered according to several criteria. In this work we describe the references for the activity to be injected in Europe and particularly in France, then we will discuss the possible differences on the proposed activities for radiopharmaceuticals widely used. In Europe and more particularly in France, the reference structures for the activity to be injected in nuclear medicine examinations are essentially: French Society of Nuclear Medicine (SFMN), European Association of Nuclear Medicine (EANM), Society of Nuclear Medicine and Molecular Imaging (SNMMI), Vidal Hoptimal, National Hospital Center for Information on Medicines (CNHIM). For the P 99m PTc-HMPAO the activity values proposed by the 5 references are practically in the same limits except for the Vidal and CNHIM where they are a little weaker. For the P 18 PF-FDG, the P 99m PTc-HMDP, P 99m PTc-Tetrafosmin, there are slight variations on the activities proposed by the SFMN, the EANM, Vidal and the CNHIM. On the other hand, the variations are important compared to the values of the SNMMI. For a better optimization of the activity to be injected (ALARA) and because of the unjustified fear of the nuclear and the carefree patients, it would be better to harmonize the proposed activities for all radiotracers.
