Title: Five Years of Cyclotron Radioisotope Production Experiences at the First PET-CT in Venezuela

Abstract

Five years operation of a compact cyclotron installed at PET-CT facility in Caracas, Venezuela is given. Production rate of {sup 18}F labeled FDG, operation and radiation monitoring experience are included. We conclude that {sup 18}FDG CT-PET is the most effective technique for patient diagnosis.
