Abstract

The aim of this work is the evaluation of the performance characteristics of two different PET/CT systems, GE Discovery STE, and Philips GEMINI, for 64Cu-ATSM (Cu-diacetyl-bis(N4-methylthiosemicarbazone)) a radiopharmaceutical proposed for hypoxia. 64Cu is a non-pure positron emitter. National Electrical Manufactures Association (NEMA) NU 2-2001 standards characteristics were measured for 64Cu with comparison with more widely used 18F, a pure positron emitter.
