Improving Clinical PET/CT Image Quality in Retrospectively Reconstructed Breath-Hold Images
Observational Model: Cohort, Time Perspective: Prospective
To determine if our breath-hold acquisition technique can be implemented in whole-body PET/CT scans.
Because PET events not satisfying the breathing amplitude selection criteria will be dropped off the final image set, it will be necessary to increase the acquisition time for the FOV's covering the thorax area from 3 min/bed to 5 min/bed to compensate for the reduction in statistics. This should result in a total increase of ~6 min for the whole body scan.
