Cardiac PET/CT misregistration causes significant changes in estimated myocardial blood flow.

Abstract

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… (More)
