Realistic and Efficient Modeling of Radiotracer Heterogeneity in Monte Carlo Simulations of PET Images With Tumors

Abstract

Monte Carlo simulations are extensively used in PET to evaluate the accuracy with which PET images can yield reliable estimates of parameters of interest. For such applications, the simulated images should be as realistic as possible so that conclusions can be extrapolated to clinical PET images. In this work, we describe a method for introducing realistic… (More)
