  • For pre-clinical imaging, GE is showing its new eXplore speCZT, a full-ring, solid-state detector small animal SPECT that utilizes a cadmium zinc telluride (CZT) detector, and allows for 360-degree coverage around the animal and high-energy resolution to enable dual or triple radio-nuclide imaging.

  • metals
  • The absence of a filled inner f shell is the reason for the somewhat higher melting temperature of cadmium and zinc, although both these metals still melt easily and, in addition, have unusually low boiling points. (wikipedia.org)
  • To investigate the mechanism of altered uptake of cadmium in Cd-rB5 cells, incorporation of various metals was determined simultaneously using a multitracer technique. (aspetjournals.org)
  • Because cadmium is not an essential trace element, transporters for metals such as calcium, zinc, copper, or iron may also be used for cadmium incorporation. (aspetjournals.org)
  • The most important cellular factor responsible for cadmium resistance in animals is known to be metallothionein (MT). MT is a low-molecular-weight cysteine-rich protein that can be induced by metals, including cadmium, and can attenuate the toxicity of metals by sequestering them ( K├Ągi, 1993 ). (aspetjournals.org)
  • gamma camera
  • Compared to the standard gamma camera, this system provides an 8-fold increase in count rates, thereby reducing imaging times significantly, while achieving a 2-fold increase in spatial resolution as well(3), thus enabling high quality scans (Fig. 1) with a significant reduction in imaging time and radioisotopes doses.

  • Zinc makes up about 75 ppm (0.0075%) of Earth's crust, making it the 24th most abundant element. (wikipedia.org)
  • radiation

  • It has a short half-life, emits only gamma ray photons, and does not emit beta or alpha particles (which are more damaging to surrounding cells), and thus is particularly suitable as an imaging radioisotope. (wikipedia.org)
  • various
  • Standard spectroscopy tests using radioisotope sources at various temperatures, X-ray irradiations can be performed using a variety of standard X-ray tubes up to 160 kVp. (surrey.ac.uk)
