Fast analytical approach of application specific dose efficient spectrum selection for diagnostic CT imaging and PET attenuation correction.

Abstract

Computed tomography (CT) has been used for a variety of applications, two of which include diagnostic imaging and attenuation correction for PET or SPECT imaging. Ideally, the x-ray tube spectrum should be optimized for the specific application to minimize the patient radiation dose while still providing the necessary information. In this study, we proposed… (More)
