UNLABELLED Attenuation correction (AC) for integrated PET/MR imaging in the human brain is still an open problem. In this study, we evaluated a simplified atlas-based AC (Atlas-AC) by comparing (18)F-FDG PET data corrected using either Atlas-AC or true CT data (CT-AC). METHODS We enrolled 8 patients (median age, 63 y). All patients underwent clinically indicated whole-body (18)F-FDG PET/CT for staging, restaging, or follow-up of malignant disease. All patients volunteered for an additional… CONTINUE READING
