A Combined Noise Reduction and Partial Volume Estimation Method for Image Quantitation

Abstract

The partial volume effect is a corrupting artifact that affects nuclear imaging data such as PET and SPECT data and manifests as a blurring action on the resultant image data. This artifact is a result of the image acquisition process, where voxels in the PET or SPECT images are typically composed of a mixture of activity concentrations. This prevents… (More)
