CT scans, contrast-enhanced2Volume: mean ± SD, 2.5 ± 0.7 mL; range, 2.0–3.0 mL
PET scans18Volume: mean ± SD, 1.3 ± 0.8 mL; range, 0.6–3.0 mL; median, 1.0 mL
18F-FDG PET/CT scans8Activity: mean ± SD, 32.8 ± 4.4 MBq; range, 29.1–40.1 MBq; median, 30.3 MBq
18F-NaF scans1Activity: mean, 38.0 MBq
124I-NaI scans6*Activity: mean ± SD, 0.8 ± 0.3 MBq; range, 0.54–0.99 MBq
  • * 124I-NaI was injected once into 2 eggs; afterward, 4 datasets were acquired for first egg and 2 datasets for second egg at different time points, considering relatively long half-life of 100 h.
