OBJECTIVE The purpose of this study was to evaluate the influence of (68)Ge-based and CT-based attenuation correction as well as two standard image reconstruction algorithms on the appearance of artefacts due to dental hardware. Additionally, the intensity of such artefacts was compared with (18)F-fluorodeoxyglucose (FDG) uptake in patients with known oral… CONTINUE READING
