Fludeoxyglucose F 18 Injection is a positron emitting radiopharmaceutical that is used for diagnostic purposes in conjunction with positron emission tomography (PET) imaging. The active ingredient 2-deoxy-2-[ 18F]fluoro-D-glucose has the molecular formula of C 6H 1118FO 5with a molecular weight of 181.26, and has the following chemical structure:
Fludeoxyglucose F 18 Injection is provided as a ready to use sterile, pyrogen free, clear, colorless citrate buffered solution. Each mL contains between 0.740 to 18.5 GBq (20.0-500 mCi) of 2-deoxy-2-[ 18F]fluoro-D-glucose at the EOS, 4.5 mg of sodium chloride in citrate buffer. The pH of the solution is between 4.5 and 7.5. The solution is packaged in a multiple-dose glass vial and does not contain any preservative.
Fluorine F 18 has a physical half-life of 109.7 minutes and decays to Oxygen O 18 (stable) by positron decay. The principal photons useful for imaging are the dual 511 keV "annihilation" gamma photons, that are produced and emitted simultaneously in opposite direction when the positron interacts with an electron (Table 2).
|Radiation/Emission||% per Disintegration||Mean Energy|
|Positron (β+)||96.73||249.8 keV|
|Gamma (±) *||193.46||511.0 keV|
The specific gamma ray constant (point source air kerma coefficient) for fluorine F 18 is 5.7 R/hr/mCi (1.35 x 10 -6 Gy/hr/kBq) at 1 cm. The half-value layer (HVL) for the 511 keV photons is 4 mm lead (Pb). The range of attenuation coefficients for this radionuclide as a function of lead shield thickness is shown in Table 3. For example, the interposition of an 8 mm thickness of Pb, with a coefficient of attenuation of 0.25, will decrease the external radiation by 75%.
|Shield Thickness (Pb) mm||Coefficient of Attenuation|
For use in correcting for physical decay of this radionuclide, the fractions remaining at selected intervals after calibration are shown in Table 4.
Fludeoxyglucose F 18 Injection is supplied in a multi-dose, capped 30 mL glass vial containing between 0.740 – 18.5 GBq/mL (20 - 500 mCi/mL), of no carrier added 2-deoxy-2-[F 18] fluoro-D-glucose, at end of synthesis, in approximately 16 - 17 mL. The contents of each vial are sterile, pyrogen-free and preservative-free.
Store the Fludeoxyglucose F 18 Injection vial upright in a lead shielded container at 20º to 25°C (68º to 77°F); excursions permitted to 15-30°C (59-86°F) [See USP Controlled Room Temperature].
Distribute, store and dispose of Fludeoxyglucose F 18 Injection in accordance with the regulations and a general license, or its equivalent, of an Agreement State or a Licensing State.
The expiration date and time are provided on the container label. Use Fludeoxyglucose F 18 Injection within 12 hours from the EOS time.
