Trial Information

Improving Clinical PET/CT Image Quality in Retrospectively Reconstructed Breath-Hold Images


Inclusion Criteria:



- Participant is capable of providing written consent.

- 18 years of age or older.

- Patient with a known or suspected FDG-avid malignancy in the torso

Exclusion Criteria:

- none

Type of Study:

Observational

Study Design:

Observational Model: Cohort, Time Perspective: Prospective

Outcome Measure:

To determine if our breath-hold acquisition technique can be implemented in whole-body PET/CT scans.

Outcome Description:

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.

Outcome Time Frame:

at the time of scan

Safety Issue:

No
