Abstract

I here report the fundamental performance of a new generation of compact medical cyclotrons for hospital-based PET tracer manufacture, exemplified with the FDG production numbers achieved by the first prototype of the GE GenTrace cyclotron. The proton energy is 7.8 MeV. After 3 years of extensive testing in a "physics lab" setting, which is door-to-door with our normal GMP production suite, I can now conclude that this cyclotron in conjunction with a standard GE Fastlab chemistry box easily achieves significant, reliable and compliant FDG output surpassing 15 GBq per batch at EOS, after 2 hours bombardment time. The details are reported below.
