BackgroundThe impact of time-of-flight (TOF) in myocardial perfusion 13N-ammonia positron emission tomography (PET) is unclear.Methods and ResultsTwenty consecutive subjects underwent rest and adenosine stress 13N-ammonia myocardial perfusion PET. Two sets of images were reconstructed using TOF-ordered subset expectation maximization (TOF-OSEM) and 3-dimensional row-action maximum likelihood algorithm (3D-RAMLA). Qualitative and quantitative analyses from the TOF-OSEM and 3D-RAMLA… CONTINUE READING
