Gas Delivery Systems, Stable Xenon
Definition : Gas delivery systems designed for the intravenous administration of stable (i.e., nonradioactive), metabolically inert xenon gas as a tracer. These systems usually consist of an operator console with a digital computer, monitor, printer, and recorder that is intended for remote control of a mobile gas delivery unit and a mobile unit used to deliver the gas that can be easily moved around the computed tomography (CT) scanners. Stable xenon gas delivery systems are intended to measure cerebral blood flow (CBF) in cortical and deep brain tissues using standard CT scanners, especially for diagnosis and treatment of stroke.
