We have investigated a combined 2D/3D protocol for minimizing contamination in dual tracer P.E.T. studies in which the tracers are administered on a timescale that is short compared to the half-lives. We have performed a series of phantom studies on an Advance and a Discovery ST (GE Healthcare Technologies), using a torso phantom with cardiac insert (Data Spectrum Corporation) to simulate a combined FDG and NH 3 scan protocol for a patient with ischemia. The phantom was imaged in a series ofdoi:10.1109/nssmic.2004.1466452 fatcat:4io366arqbawxaf2ypqo3b2mee
