UNLABELLED Semiquantitative standard uptake values (SUVs) are used for tumor diagnosis and response monitoring. However, the accuracy of the SUV and the accuracy of relative change during treatment are not well documented. Therefore, an experimental and simulation study was performed to determine the effects of noise, image resolution, and region-of-interest (ROI) definition on the accuracy of SUVs. METHODS Experiments and simulations are based on thorax phantoms with tumors of 10-, 15-, 20… CONTINUE READING
