Abstract

We demonstrate a new weighting kernel for linear time-of-flight (TOF) positron emission tomography (PET) reconstruction that produces lower image noise variance in finite-sized objects than ldquoconfidence weightingrdquo (CW) or any other kernel previously reported in the literature. The proposed kernel is adaptive to object size, but is always broader than… (More)
