UNLABELLED Misregistration of cardiac PET/CT data can lead to misinterpretation of regional myocardial perfusion. However, the effect of misregistration on the quantification of myocardial blood flow (MBF) has not been studied. METHODS Cardiac (82)Rb-PET/CT scans of 10 patients with normal regional myocardial perfusion were analyzed. Realignment was done for the baseline and stress PET/CT images as necessary, and MBF was obtained from dynamic data. Then, the stress images were misregistered… CONTINUE READING
