Comparative evaluation of scatter correction techniques in 3D positron emission tomography

  title={Comparative evaluation of scatter correction techniques in 3D positron emission tomography},
  author={Habib Zaidi},
  journal={European Journal of Nuclear Medicine},
Much research and development has been concentrated on the scatter compensation required for quantitative 3D positron emission tomography (PET). Increasingly sophisticated scatter correction procedures are under investigation, particularly those based on accurate scatter models and iterative reconstruction-based scatter compensation approaches. The main difference among the correction methods is the way in which the scatter component in the selected energy window is estimated. Monte Carlo… CONTINUE READING
