Prior to reconstruction, emission data from a multi-ring PET camera must be corrected (normalized) for variations in detector sensitivity. The appropriate correction coefficients are obtained by measuring the response of all coincidence lines to a calibrated source of activity (a blank scan). State-of-the-art cameras may contain up to a million such lines… CONTINUE READING
