Impact of the Definition of Peak Standardized Uptake Value on Quantification of Treatment Response
PET-based treatment response assessment typically measures the change in maximum standardized uptake value (SUVmax), which is adversely affected by noise. Peak SUV (SUVpeak) has been recommended as aExpand
