Field of view extension and truncation correction for MR-based human attenuation correction in simultaneous MR/PET imaging.

Abstract

PURPOSE In quantitative PET imaging, it is critical to accurately measure and compensate for the attenuation of the photons absorbed in the tissue. While in PET/CT the linear attenuation coefficients can be easily determined from a low-dose CT-based transmission scan, in whole-body MR/PET the computation of the linear attenuation coefficients is based on… (More)
