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
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
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.
