Noise levels observed in positron emission tomography (PET) images complicate their geometric interpretation. Post-processing techniques aimed at noise reduction may be employed to overcome this problem. The detailed characteristics of the noise affecting PET images are, however, often not well known. Typically, it is assumed that overall the noise may be characterized as Gaussian. Other PET-imaging-related studies have been specifically aimed at the reduction of noise represented by a Poisson… CONTINUE READING
