A nonlinear variational method for improved quantification of myocardial blood flow using dynamic H215O PET

Abstract

H215O as a PET-tracer offers the opportunity to examine perfusion of blood into tissue non-invasively (cf. [1]). It features a short radioactive half-life (≈ 2 min.) and therefore adds a smaller radiation exposure to the patient in comparison to other tracers. The disadvantages arising from the short radioactive half-life are noisy, low-resolution… (More)
