part 1: Please compare the insurance cost for one treatment regimen of
cancer using photon beam therapy versus proton beam therapy. (approx 1 paragraph)
part 2: PET produces images of the body by detecting the radiation emitted from radioactive
substances. These substances are injected into the body, and are usually tagged with a
radioactive atom (such as Carbon-11, Fluorine-18, Oxygen-15, or Nitrogen-13) with a short decay
• These radioactive atoms are formed by bombarding normal chemicals with neutrons to create
short-lived radioactive isotopes. PET detects the gamma rays given off at the site where a
positron emitted from the radioactive substance collides with an electron in the tissue
• Please describe the properties of D-18, C-11, Nitrogen-13, and Oxygen-15.
