Evaluation of transmission methodology and attenuation correction for the microPET Focus 220 animal scanner.

An accurate, low noise estimate of photon attenuation in the subject is required for quantitative microPET studies of molecular tracer distributions in vivo. In this work, several transmission-based measurement techniques were compared, including coincidence mode with and without rod windowing, singles mode with two different energy sources ((68)Ge and (57… CONTINUE READING
