    Abstract

    In high-dose-rate (HDR) brachytherapy, verification of an Ir-192 source's position during treatment is required. One of the methods for this used a high-energy pinhole gamma camera to image the position of the source, but the absolute position of the source cannot be measured. To confirm the absolute position, it will be useful to acquire the transmission image of a subject in addition to the gamma photon image at the same time without using an additional X-ray system. To measure the transmission images, we tried to use the high-energy gamma photons emitted from the Ir-192 source used for the therapy. We developed a high-energy gamma photon imaging system composed of 1-mm-thick Pr doped Gd<sub>2</sub>O<sub>2</sub>S (GOS), a surface mirror, and a cooled charge-coupled device (CCD) camera. The developed imaging system achieved transmission imaging of high-energy gamma photons by transporting the Ir-192 source in front of the imaging system. The spatial resolution of the imaging system was better than 2.4 mm FWHM with and without a 10-cm-thick acrylic block set between the imaging system and the source. Moderate spatial resolution and contrast images of phantoms were obtained with the system. For the dynamic imaging mode, continuous images of the phantoms were measured with 1-sec intervals. There was no observable difference in the transmission images by the movement of the Ir-192 source. Transmission imaging of subjects using an Ir-192 source for HDR brachytherapy could be achieved using our developed imaging system. The system offers a new method to measure the real-time transmission images of the subject during HDR brachytherapy.

  16. Performance comparison of finely pixelated LYSO- and GAGG-based Si-PM gamma cameras for high resolution SPECT Reviewed

    Although Lu-based scintillators, including Ce-doped Lu1.8Y0.2SiO5 (LYSO) scintillators, are often used for positron emission tomography (PET) detectors, they are not commonly used in gamma cameras for single-photon emission computed tomography (SPECT) because background counts due to contamination of the natural radioisotope in Lu are detected. However, several studies report that deterioration in image contrast due to background counts of the natural radioisotope is not critical and thus LYSO is promising for use in SPECT detectors. Meanwhile, a new scintillator, the Ce-doped Gd3Al2Ga3O12 (GAGG) with a high light yield and no natural radioisotope, has been developed and is also thought to be a promising scintillator. Thus, we compared the performance of LYSO with that of GAGG to determine which is more appropriate for a silicon photomultiplier (Si-PM)-based high-resolution small field-of-view (FOV) gamma camera for SPECT. We used finely pixelated LYSO and GAGG plates that were optically coupled to Si-PM arrays to form gamma cameras and measured the basic performance for 122-keV gamma photons. The energy resolutions of the LYSO- and GAGG-based Si-PM gamma cameras were 30% and 23% full width at half maximum (FWHM), respectively. The intrinsic spatial resolution of the GAGG (∼0.5mm FWHM) based gamma camera was better than that of the LYSO (∼0.6mm FWHM). The background counts of the LYSO-based gamma camera were 28 times larger than that of the GAGG. Based on these results, we conclude that GAGG is more appropriate than LYSO for the development of a Si-PM based gamma camera for high resolution SPECT.
