|Title:||Status of the Positron Emission Tomography Centre at the Austin Hospital.||Austin Authors:||Egan, Gary F||Affiliation:||PET Centre, Austin Hospital, Heidelberg.||Issue Date:||1-Mar-1991||Publication information:||Australasian Physical & Engineering Sciences in Medicine / Supported By the Australasian College of Physical Scientists in Medicine and the Australasian Association of Physical Sciences in Medicine; 14(1): 42-7||Abstract:||A Positron Emission Tomography (PET) Centre is currently being established at the Austin Hospital, Melbourne. The Centre has recently purchased a Siemens Model 951/31 PET scanner and an Ion Beam Applications (IBA) Model 10/5 cyclotron with associated targetry and automated radiochemistry modules. The initial areas of clinical investigation at the Austin Hospital will be heart and brain studies using 18Fluorodeoxyglucose (FDG) and 13Nitrogen-ammonia (13NH3). The heart studies will concentrate on determining myocardial viability in patients following infarction whilst studies of epileptic patients will involve determination of the epileptic focus in the brain. A description of the major technical instrumentation is given together with an overview of the radiopharmaceutical production processes and the initial program of clinical investigations to be undertaken.||Gov't Doc #:||2029241||URI:||http://ahro.austin.org.au/austinjspui/handle/1/10984||URL:||https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/2029241||Type:||Journal Article||Subjects:||Australia
