Investigation of Accelerated Monte Carlo Techniques for PET Simulation and 3-D PET Scatter Correction


We have been developing Monte Carlo Techniques for calculating primary and scatter photon distributions in PET. Our first goal has been to accelerate the Monte Carlo Code for fast PET simulation. Our second goal has been to use the simulation to analyze scatter effects in PET and explore the potential for eventual use in scatter correction of clinical 3-D… (More)
