Abstract:The most recent development in PET technology is the use of digital detectors. This potentially offers the opportunity to shorten scan duration or to decrease FDG activity. In addition, image quality of PET scans may be improved, enabling improved small lesion detection. The aims of this study were 1) to develop a model that predicts required FDG activity and scan duration for a standardized image quality based on the NEMA specifications of a given PET/CT system and 2) to evaluate the potential value of ultra-high-resolution (uHR) reconstructions to improve small lesion detection, compared to high-resolution (HR) reconstructions.
