Table 4 List of percent blood volume predicted by the FDG newborn model compared with values for the adult in ICRP 106 and the original FDG adult model

From: Pharmacokinetic modeling of [18F]fluorodeoxyglucose (FDG) for premature infants, and newborns through 5-year-olds

Organ Fraction blood volume (%)
Adults (ICRP 106) Adults (Hays and Segall) Premature 0- to 5-year-olds
Brain 1.2 a 2.2 13.5
Lungs 12.5 15 9 3
Heart wall 1.0 (same listed has coronary tissue) 6.9 (includes coronary artery) 2.5 3.1
Liver 10 24.3 9.8
