CT-based attenuation correction and related artefacts. A typical whole-body PET scan is started 60 min after the intravenous administration of ± MBq 18 F-FDG per kg body weight. The axial field of view of the PET system (10–15 cm) is extended by imaging in multiple bed positions to cover the whole body acquisition time of 4–6 min per bed position produces images of relatively good.

Magnetic resonance imaging-only radiotherapy treatment planning (MRI-only RTP) and positron emission tomography (PET)–MRI imaging require generation of synthetic computed tomography (sCT) images from MRI images. In this study, initial dosimetric evaluation was performed for a previously developed MRI-based attenuation correction (MRAC) method for use in MRI-only RTP of the brain.   The latter included brain, torso, prostate and phantoms. The contributions geometric and/or dosimetric performance metrics were also noted. The majority of studies are carried out on the brain for 5–10 patients with PET/MR applications in mind using a voxel based method. T1 weighted images are most commonly applied.

Simultaneous positron emission tomography (PET)/magnetic resonance (MR) imaging has been Optimisation of attenuation correction for PET brain activation studies book to combine the soft-tissue contrast of MR imaging with the molecular sensitivity and specificity of PET.

However, a remaining challenge lies in obtaining a reliable photon attenuation correction (AC) map, which is crucial for accurate PET Cited by:   Objectives Generally, in patients with nervous system diseases undergoing brain PET/CT imaging, they also have enhanced MRI or enhanced CT so that the CT images in PET/CT scan is used only for Attenuation Correction(AC).

The aim of this study was to reduce unnecessary patient radiation doses from the CT portion of PET/CT and determine the minimum CT acquisition parameters that can Author: Jung Sun Kim, Ho Sung Kim, Jae Kwang Ryu, Woo Young Jung, Kyeong Rae Dong, Woon Kwan Chung.

PET (positron emission tomography) biokinetic modelling relies on accurate quantitative data. One of the main corrections required in PET imaging to obtain high quantitative accuracy is tissue attenuation correction (AC). Incorrect non-uniform PET-AC may result in local bias in the emission images, and thus in relative activity distributions and time activity curves for different Cited by: 1.

The failure to compensate for subject motion between attenuation correction scans and emission scans precludes the optimization of functional brain imaging techniques.

We have developed an automated method for attenuation correction that compensates for subject motion by deriving each set of correction factors from the corresponding emission by:   CT protocol intents used in PET/CT. According to all the 27 considered studies, a CT scan in PET/CT exams can be done for different purposes.

In Table 5, we identified and reported 5 classes of protocol intents: (A) CT acquisition for anatomic localization and attenuation correction, (B) CT acquisition for attenuation correction only (ULTRA-low dose), (C) CT acquisition for diagnostic Cited by: 2.

Table 1 summarizes the patient demographics of the clinical 18 F-FDG PET brain studies. PET data acquisition started 31 ± 5 min post-injection and lasted 20 min. Low-dose CT scanning for attenuation correction (kVp =mAs = 20, rotation speed = s and voxel size = 1 × 1 × mm 3) preceded PET data acquisition.

To obtain meaningful quantitative results from PET images, attenuation correction is necessary during image reconstruction. We evaluated the accuracy of PET attenuation correction using our method in the context of FDG PET/CT brain scans.
