Absolute Quantitation of Myocardial Blood Flow in Human Subjects With or Without Myocardial Ischemia Using Dynamic Flurpiridaz F 18 PET
Absolute quantitation of myocardial blood flow (MBF) by PET is an established method of analyzing coronary artery disease (CAD) but subject to the various shortcomings of available radiotracers.Expand

Validation of the SimSET simulation package for modeling the Siemens Biograph mCT PET scanner.
TLDR
We used the NEMA NU-2 2007 scatter fraction, count rates, and spatial resolution protocols to validate the SimSET simulation model and its new features of the Siemens Biograph mCT PET scanner. Expand

Optimal whole-body PET scanner configurations for different volumes of LSO scintillator: a simulation study.
The axial field of view (AFOV) of the current generation of clinical whole-body PET scanners range from 15-22 cm, which limits sensitivity and renders applications such as whole-body dynamic imagingExpand

Molecular imaging in oncology: the acceptance of PET/CT and the emergence of MR/PET imaging
In the last decade, PET-only systems have been phased out and replaced with PET-CT systems. This merger of a functional and anatomical imaging modality turned out to be extremely useful in clinicalExpand

Whole Body PET Imaging Using Variable Acquisition Times
Whole Body PET scans are typically performed as a series of image sets acquired at discrete axial positions to cover most or all of the body. The acquisition time at each axial position is typicallyExpand

Respiratory Gated PET Derived in a Fully Automated Manner From Raw PET Data
TLDR
We present a data-driven method, based on individual voxel signal fluctuations, for accomplishing electronic respiratory gating of clinical PET data, requiring no additional hardware or end-user input. Expand

Quantitative analysis of [18F]FDDNP PET using subcortical white matter as reference region
PurposeSubcortical white matter is known to be relatively unaffected by amyloid deposition in Alzheimer’s disease (AD). We investigated the use of subcortical white matter as a reference region toExpand

A Promising Future: Comparable Imaging Capability of MRI-Compatible Silicon Photomultiplier and Conventional Photosensor Preclinical PET Systems
We recently completed construction of a small-animal PET system—the MiniPET-3—that uses state-of-the-art silicon photomultiplier (SiPM) photosensors, making possible dual-modality imaging with MRI.Expand
