Application of MRI-based partial-volume correction to the analysis of PET images of mu-opioid receptors using statistical parametric mapping.

Abstract

UNLABELLED The accurate quantification of brain radioactivity concentration is limited by the spatial resolution of the PET scanner for structures smaller than 2-3 times the resolution. In the presence of enlarged cerebrospinal fluid spaces or regions of cortical neuronal loss, a significant underestimation of gray-matter radioactivity concentration due to… (More)
