Abstract

The bone marrow (BM) is a main organ at risk in Lu-177-PSMA-617 therapy of prostate cancer and Lu-177-Octreotate therapy of neuroendocrine tumours. BM dosimetry is challenging and time-consuming, as different sequential quantitative measurements must be combined. The BM absorbed dose from the remainder of the body (ROB) can be determined from sequential whole-body planar (WB-P) imaging, while quantitative Lu-177-SPECT allows for more robust tumour and organ absorbed doses. The aim was to investigate a time-efficient and patient-friendly hybrid protocol (HP) for the ROB absorbed dose to the BM. It combines three abdominal quantitative SPECT (QSPECT) scans with a single WB-P acquisition and was compared with a reference protocol (RP) using sequential WB-P in combination with sequential QSPECT images. We investigated five patients receiving 7.4 GBq Lu-177-Octreotate and five patients treated with 3.7 GBq Lu-177-PSMA-617. Each patient had WB-P and abdominal SPECT acquisitions 24 (+ CT), 48, and 72 h post-injection. Blood samples were drawn 30 min, 80 min, 24 h, 48 h, and 72 h post-injection. BM absorbed doses from the ROB were estimated from sequential WB-P images (RP), via a mono-exponential fit and mass-scaled organ-level S values. For the HP, a mono-exponential fit on the QSPECT data was scaled with the activity of one WB-P image acquired either 24, 48, or 72 h post-injection (HP24, HP48, HP72). Total BM absorbed doses were determined as a sum of ROB, blood, major organ, and tumour contributions. Compared with the RP and for Lu-177-Octreotate therapy, median differences of the total BM absorbed doses were 13% (9-17%), 8% (4-15%), and 1% (0-5%) for the HP24, HP48, and HP72, respectively. For Lu-177-PSMA-617 therapy, total BM absorbed doses deviated 10% (2-20%), 3% (0-6%), and 2% (0-6%). For both Lu-177-Octreotate and Lu-177-PSMA-617 therapy, BM dosimetry via sequential QSPECT imaging and a single WB-P acquisition is feasible, if this WB-P image is acquired at a late time point (48 or 72 h post-injection). The reliability of the HP can be well accepted considering the uncertainties of quantitative Lu-177 imaging and BM dosimetry using standardised organ-level S values.

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 2. This is our high-level measure of the quality and quantity of online attention that it has received. This Attention Score, as well as the ranking and number of research outputs shown below, was calculated when the research output was last mentioned on 24 August 2018.
All research outputs
#8,369,532
of 13,415,596 outputs
Outputs from EJNMMI Research
#101
of 268 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#158,879
of 267,410 outputs
Outputs of similar age from EJNMMI Research
#1
of 1 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 13,415,596 research outputs across all sources so far. This one is in the 37th percentile – i.e., 37% of other outputs scored the same or lower than it.
So far Altmetric has tracked 268 research outputs from this source. They receive a mean Attention Score of 1.8. This one has gotten more attention than average, scoring higher than 61% of its peers.
Older research outputs will score higher simply because they've had more time to accumulate mentions. To account for age we can compare this Altmetric Attention Score to the 267,410 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one is in the 40th percentile – i.e., 40% of its contemporaries scored the same or lower than it.
We're also able to compare this research output to 1 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one has scored higher than all of them
