Fig. 3

Anthropomorphic phantom used to validate the PET camera’s ability to produce 90Y quantitative data. The phantom is composed by a background region (10,300 mL), a liver compartment (1200 mL), left (900 mL) and right lung (1100 mL), and a spine insert (200 mL). A homemade cylindrical PMMA insert was manufactured and fixed into the liver cavity to simulate a hepatic lesion. The nominal volume of the insert is 19.13 mL (diameter 28.5 mm, height 30 mm)
