In SPECT imaging of the chest, nonuniform attenuation correction requires use of a patient specific attenuation (mu) map. Such a map can be obtained by estimating the regions of (1) the lungs and (2) the soft tissues and bones, and then assigning an appropriate value of attenuation coefficient (mu) to each region. The authors proposed a method to segment such regions from the Compton scatter and photopeak window SPECT slices of Tc-99m Sestamibi studies. The Compton scatter slices are used to… CONTINUE READING
