UNLABELLED Scatter correction in SPECT is important for improving image quality, boundary detection and the quantification of activity in different regions. This paper presents a comparison of four scatter correction methods, three using more than one energy window and one convolution-subtraction correction method using spatial variant scatter line-spread functions. METHODS The comparison is based on Monte Carlo simulated data for point sources on- and off-axis, hot and cold spheres of… CONTINUE READING
