The NIH PET Department is organized as a technical core concentrating on radiochemistry. There are extensive resources available, including two medical cyclotrons (a Cyclotron Corporation CS-30 and a Japan Steel Works, JSW 1710), radiochemistry laboratories equipped with six hot cells, three PET tomographs (Scanditronix PC-1024 and PC-2048 and a Posicam 6.5), and computer hardware and software for the generation and analysis of physiological images.

    The total energy deposited for a 15 MeV beam is 15 E6 eV/particle times 3.6 × E-3 coulombs (1 uAh) times 6.24 E18 electron charges/coulomb = 3.49 E23 eV. If 10 mL water is the target (56 mol/L × 0.01 L = .56 mol), then each molecule of water receives, on average, 3.49 E23/[0.56 × 6.023 E23] = 1.03 eV/molecule of water. For a typical run of 30 uA for 20 minutes or 0.0336 coulombs, the dose will be 10 times as high. Tilbury and Dahl quote 0.42 eV/molecule based perhaps on the beam volume only.Google Scholar
