Partial volume correction strategies for quantitative FDG PET in oncology

Abstract

Quantitative accuracy of positron emission tomography (PET) is affected by partial volume effects resulting in increased underestimation of the standardized uptake value (SUV) with decreasing tumour volume. The purpose of the present study was to assess accuracy and precision of different partial volume correction (PVC) methods. Three methods for PVC were… (More)
