1. Dose calibrator manufacturer-dependent bias in assays of 123I
Published: 3/26/2014
Authors: Denis E Bergeron, Jeffrey T Cessna, Daniel Benjamin Golas, Rheannan K Young, Brian Edward Zimmerman
Abstract: Calibration factors for commercial ionization chambers (i.e. dose calibrators) were determined for a solution of 123I; the activity was based on the 1976 NBS standard. A link between the NIST standard and the International Reference System (SIR) was ...

2. A New NIST Primary Standardization of 18F
Published: 2/1/2014
Authors: Ryan P Fitzgerald, Brian Edward Zimmerman, Denis E Bergeron, Jeffrey T Cessna, Leticia S Pibida, Denise S Moreira
Abstract: A new primary standardization of 18F by NIST is reported. The standard is based on live-timed beta- gamma anticoincidence counting with confirmatory measurements by three other methods: (i) liquid scintillation (LS) counting using CIEMAT/NIST 3H e ...

3. Micelle size effect on Fe-55 Liquid Scintillation Efficiency
Published: 12/1/2013
Authors: Denis E Bergeron, Lizbeth Laureano-Perez
Abstract: We used efficiency tracing techniques to study the micelle size effect on liquid scintillation counting of the low-energy Auger electron emitter, 55Fe. We determined micelle hydrodynamic diameters for specific LS cocktails via dynamic light scatteri ...

4. Calibration of traceable solid mock I-131 phantoms used in an international SPECT image quantification comparison
Series: Journal of Research (NIST JRES)
Report Number: 118.017
Published: 8/15/2013
Authors: Brian Edward Zimmerman, Leticia S Pibida, Lynne Emily King, Denis E Bergeron, Jeffrey T Cessna, Matthew Merril Mille
Abstract: The International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) has organized an international comparison to assess Single Photon Emission Computed Tomography (SPECT) image quantification capabilities in 12 countries. Iodine-131 was chosen as the radionuclide for ...

5. The effect of impurities on calculated activity in the triple-to-double coincidence ratio liquid scintillation method
Published: 3/4/2012
Authors: Denis E Bergeron, Ryan P Fitzgerald, Brian Edward Zimmerman, Jeffrey T Cessna
Abstract: In the triple-to-double coincidence ratio (TDCR) method of liquid scintillation counting, unaccounted or improperly accounted impurities can result in lower-than-expected or higher-than-expected recovered activities, depending on the counting efficie ...

6. Determination of micelle size in some commercial liquid scintillation cocktails
Published: 3/3/2012
Author: Denis E Bergeron
Abstract: We performed dynamic light scattering measurements on commercially available liquid scintillation (LS) cocktails over a range of aqueous and acid contents. In all cases, we measured hydrodynamic diameters substantially smaller than the current de fa ...

7. Development of secondary standards for radium-223
Published: 11/5/2009
Authors: Denis E Bergeron, Brian Edward Zimmerman, Jeffrey T Cessna
Abstract: 223Ra is a bone-seeking alpha emitter, and as such is currently being evaluated as a radiopharmaceutical for the treatment of skeletal metastases. In the clinical setting, dosage measurements are typically achieved with reentrant ionization chambers ...

8. Identification of Active Sites of Biomolecules II: Saccharide and Transition Metal ion in Aqueous Solution
Published: 2/23/2009
Authors: Orkid Coskuner, Denis E Bergeron, Luis Cipriano Rincon, Jeffrey W Hudgens, Carlos A Gonzalez
Abstract: We discuss the coordination mechanism of FeIII and methyl-a-mannopyranoside in aqueous solution using a recently presented integrated approach comprising ab initio electronic structure calculations, molecular dynamics simulations, and mass spectrome ...

9. Ligand Exchange Reactions in the Formation of Diphosphine-Protected Gold Clusters
Published: 8/14/2008
Authors: Denis E Bergeron, Orkid Coskuner, Jeffrey W Hudgens, Carlos A Gonzalez
Abstract: Electrospray ionization mass spectrometry is employed to study the formation of L3- and L5-protected gold clusters (L3 = 1,3-Bis(diphenylphosphino)propane; L5 = 1,5-Bis(diphenylphosphino)pentane), and it is found that molecular complexes in which Au+ ...

10. Glycosidic Linkage Conformation of Methyl-alpha-Mannopyranoside
Published: 7/31/2008
Authors: Orkid Coskuner, Denis E Bergeron, Luis Cipriano Rincon, Jeffrey W Hudgens, Carlos A Gonzalez
Abstract: We study the preferred conformation of the glycosidic linkage of methyl--mannopyranoside in the gas phase and in aqueous solution. Results obtained utilizing Car Parrinello molecular dynamics (CPMD) simulations are compared to those obtained ...
