Effect of respiratory gating on quantifying PET images of lung cancer.


UNLABELLED We have developed a new technique to gate lung 18F-FDG PET images in synchronization with the respiratory motion to reduce smearing due to breathing and improve quantitation of 18F-FDG uptake in lung lesions. METHODS A camera-based respiratory gating system, the real-time position management (RPM), is used to monitor the respiratory cycle. The… (More)
