BACKGROUND: Cost-containment through indigenous development and production and its subsequent examination in clinical settings would be a pivotal step for bringing radioimmunotherapy (RIT) agents to more widespread clinical practice in non-Hodgkin's lymphoma (NHL) patients, especially in developing countries. AIMS and OBJECTIVES: To examine the biodistribution and dosimetry of indigenously developed and radiolabeled 131 I-Rituximab, using the monoclonal antibody of chimeric origin, in patients of B cell lymphoma for its potential use in RIT...

Appropriate attenuation correction is important for accurate quantification of standardized uptake values (SUVs) in positron emission tomography (PET). Patient respiratory motion can introduce a spatial mismatch between respiratory-gated PET and computed tomography (CT), reducing quantitative accuracy. In this study, the effect of a patient-specific breathing-instructed CT protocol on the spatial alignment between CT and amplitude-based optimal respiratory-gated PET images was investigated. Methods: 18 F-fluorodeoxyglucose (FDG) PET/CT imaging was performed in 20 patients...

Rationale: To evaluate the association between qualities of nuclear medicine technology (NMT) programs and graduates, and employability. Methods: We identified all NMT certification board applicants who passed the entry level NMT exam between 2012 and 2017. Certificants were e-mailed a survey with questions regarding graduate qualities, program qualities, and initial employment. Each quality was quantified. Age, gender, and desired employment within or outside the USA were also documented. An employability scale was created from the initial employment questions...

It has become common for nuclear medicine technologists to assume the responsibilities, or even the role, of the radiation safety officer (RSO) or associate radiation safety officer (ARSO). Their responsibilities are primarily related to the radioactive materials license, but increasingly can include additional safety responsibilities within the hospital. This includes Computed Tomography (CT), Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) and Fluoroscopy safety. Many technologists reading this article may be interested in sitting for the Radiation Safety advanced certification exam by the Nuclear Medicine Technology Certification Board (NMTCB)...

Aims and Objectives: The objective of the study was to make a quantitative comparison of 72-hrs neck uptake calculated by gamma camera-based and thyroid uptake probe-based methods after administration of low-dose (111-148 MBq) of 131 I capsule in thyroid carcinoma follow-up patients who have already been treated with 131 I. Methods: The study group consists of 46 patients, of whom 14 were male (average 47.5 yrs) and 32 were female (average 38 yrs). All patients already had undergone thyroidectomy followed by 131 I treatment at least once and came to the institute after 6 months for follow-up...

Nuclear Medicine Technologists (NMTs) are specialized health professionals that cover a wide range of tasks from clinical routine (including image acquisition and processing, radiopharmaceutical dispensing and administration, patient care and radioprotection tasks) to leading clinical research in the field of Nuclear Medicine. As a fundamental concern in all radiation sciences applied to medicine, protection of individuals against the harmful effects of ionizing radiation must be constantly revised and applied by the professionals involved in medical exposures...

Purpose: The aim of the study was to assess the reliability of self-reported weight and size of nuclear medicine patients in view of recommendation for the weight-dependent tracer application for imaging and therapy. Methods: A total of 824 patients (334m, 490f) were asked to report their weight and size prior imaging or therapy and their level of confidence. Subsequently, weight and size of each patient was measured and body mass index (BMI), body surface area (BSA) and lean body mass (LBM) were calculated...

Effective leadership in the healthcare setting is vital for delivering effective and efficient patient care while meeting organizational and departmental challenges. Hospitals face unique obstacles relating to regulation and accreditation, process inefficiencies, aging or difficult to treat patients, allocation of resources, and patient satisfaction. This article describes the characteristics of a leader, integrative leadership in the healthcare setting, and provides suggestions to engage coworkers in solving complex healthcare problems...

This article presents a high-level overview of accreditation and assessment in higher education.It is designed to provide nuclear medicine technology (NMT) educators with a foundational knowledge of accreditation and assessment. This foundation will help educators understand accreditation and assessment at the college/university and program levels by discussing key terminology and exploring the concept of a culture of assessment.

The rapid influx of new technology and changing reimbursement and healthcare business models challenge nuclear medicine technology (NMT) educators to reexamine the effectiveness of traditional teaching methods. As a generation of technologists can attest, the skill sets and competencies taught today will not be the requirements of tomorrow. The question arises, "how can educators prepare students and the profession for future knowledge capacity?" The concept of lifelong learning (LLL) emerged in the 1970s as a response to the global paradigm shift from an industrial society to a knowledge society...

Objective: Fluorine-18 fluorodeoxyglucose (18 F-FDG) positron emission tomography/computed tomography (PET/CT) has limited value in early breast cancer. Sentinel lymph node (SLN) biopsy is the current procedure of choice to search for small metastatic deposits in the axillary lymph nodes in early breast cancer. In this retrospective study, we re-evaluated 18 F-FDG PET/CT images after locating SLN(s) on PET/CT with the help of SLN single photon emission computed tomography/computed tomography (SPECT/CT) images and assessed 18 F-FDG uptake particularly in the SLN(s)...

Objective: We aimed to evaluate the influence of the minimal misalignment of the hot spot on the repeatability of PET images using the repositioning of point sources. Methods: Point sources with an inner-diameter of 1 mm were made with 1μL of 18 F solution. Seven point sources were placed on the x-axis in the field-of-view. For fixed position imaging, PET data were acquired for 10 min 5 times serially. For variable position imaging, PET data were acquired for 10 minutes each with the point sources placed at 0 mm, ±0...
