Evaluation of six scatter correction methods based on spectral analysis in 99mTc SPECT imaging using SIMIND Monte Carlo simulation

Abstract

Compton-scattered photons included within the photopeak pulse-height window result in the degradation of SPECT images both qualitatively and quantitatively. The purpose of this study is to evaluate and compare six scatter correction methods based on setting the energy windows in (99m)Tc spectrum. SIMIND Monte Carlo simulation is used to generate the… (More)
