Methods for motion correction evaluation using 18F-FDG human brain scans on a high-resolution PET scanner
Research output: Contribution to journal › Journal article › Research › peer-review
Many authors have reported the importance of motion correction (MC) for PET. Patient motion during scanning disturbs kinetic analysis and degrades resolution. In addition, using misaligned transmission for attenuation and scatter correction may produce regional quantification bias in the reconstructed emission images. The purpose of this work was the development of quality control (QC) methods for MC procedures based on external motion tracking (EMT) for human scanning using an optical motion tracking system.
