Working with a prime motive of achieving utmost customer satisfaction, we are known as one of the topmost manufacturers and exporters of Tungsten PET Shields. With this shield, the dispensing of high energy PET radio-pharmaceuticals is safe without any requirement of expensive remote handling systems. We use best grade tungsten alloy for manufacturing these shields. We offer these Tungsten PET Shields to clients in different dimensions and sizes to meet their individual requirements.
What is PET?
Brachytherapy positron emission tomography (PET) is one of the nuclear medicine mechanisms, suitable for diagnosis. While X-rays gives information of the structure of the body, PET exhibits the chemical function of a desired organism. PET incorportaes the injection of FDG (a glucose-based radionuclide) from a protected syringe into the patient. As the FDG moves through the patient's body, it gives out gamma radiation viewed by a gamma camera, from which the chemical activity within cells and organs can be viewed. Any aberrational chemical activity may be an indication that tumors exists. PET scans are oftenly used to find out cancerous tumors and diseases of the brain and coronary arteries.
Tungsten PET Shields Dispensing System:
The solid tungsten PET shields dispensing system allows the safe allocation of high- energy PET radiopharmaceuticals without requirement for costly remote handling system. The magnetic "docking" attribute of the solid tungsten syringe shield into the dispensing pig permits to draw low exposure dose. It is manufactured with 3.5 cm thick walls and can accommodate up to a 30ml vial.
Tungsten PET Shields Dispensing Pig 30ml:
Tungsten PET shields dispensing pig offers a full 3.5 cm of solid tungsten to satisfactorily protect the greater energy PET radiopharmaceuticals. Designed to adjust 30ml vials (adapters are available for smaller vials).The threaded lid is added to the body of the pig in order that no radiation "shine through" occurs .Tungsten stopper, with added pull ring is kept in place magnetically. The handle allows the pig to be easily moved as a transport container as well as a dispensing pig. It weighs down 43 lbs.
Tungsten PET Shields 3/5cc:
Tungsten PET shields magnetically connects with the PET dispensing pig. Designed to receive 3cc and 5cc B-D syringes, it puts the needle into the vial septum when gets involved. The body of the shield is fabricated from the solid tungsten 2.1cm thick for higher shielding. The external calibration rod permits the exact volume to be withdrawn without a viewing port made of leaded glass, where the extensive exposure levels cannot be substantially shielded. The system enables the plunger to be pulled back with a pair of forceps, allowing one to keep one exposure to ALARA. It weighs down 5.8 lbs
Tungsten PET Shields for Pig TM Syringe:
PET Pig TM allows the safe movement and administration of unit dose PET radiopharmaceuticals. It is fabricated from the strong tungsten walls 2.25cm thick and yet weighs down only 15.6lbs. The "T" handle on the PET Pig TM cap helps the unit in being conveniently uplifted from the traditional "ammo can" delivery cases. The threaded top gives easy access to the 3cc or 5cc syringe. The application of thermos style handle minimizes hand exposure by allowing the PET Pig TM to be moved to the imaging suite without keeping container sidewalls. before injection, the base unscrews, permitting the center portion to be applied as a syringe shield.
Tungsten PET Shields Block:
Exclusively designed for PET facilities or nuclear medicine set-up that works well with high-energy positron discharging isotopes. Massive tungsten PET shields block, that is the suitable addition to labs carrying out these specialized exams. Basically, the density is controlled at the level spanning from 17.0 g/cm3 to 18.5g/cm3, that is the most sought after material for radiation shield.
