A three-dimensional simulation method has been developed for evaluating the potential to quantify myocardial function with PET (positron emission tomography) using a three-dimensional beating heart phantom. Expected tracer kinetics are assigned regionally throughout the heart phantom and tomographic simulation methods are utilized to form a dynamic sequence… CONTINUE READING
