Abstract
PHASE I OF THIS PROJECT WILL EVALUATE THE TECHNICAL FEASIBILITY OF DEVELOPING A COMMERCIALLY VIABLE RADIOISOTOPEGENERATOR FOR DESPENSING, ON DEMAND, A SHORT-LIVED RADIOISOTOPE ((199M)AU, 30 6 ). EMPHASIS WILL BE GIVEN TO EVALUATING THE (7195M)HG- (195M)AU) GENERATOR AND A COMPATIBLE ELUENT. THIS ISOTOPE CAN BE USED IN THE NONINVASIVE DIAGNOSIS AND CARDIAC ASSESSMENT OF HEART DISEASE PATIENTS WITH RESPECT TO EXTENT OF MYOCARDIAL INFARCT, HEART MUSCLE PERFUSION, BLOOD VOLUME, LEFT VENTRICULAR EJECTION FRACTION AND WALL MOTION. THIS IS EXPECTED TO OVERCOME SOME OF THE LIMITATIONS OF COMMERCIALLY AVAILABLE NONINVASIVE CARDIAC DIAGNOSTICS TOOLS ASSOCIATED SCANNING SPECIFITY, DIAGNOSTIC TIME, PARENT BREAKTHROUGH AND BODY BACKGROUND PROBLEMS.
