The clinical need for attenuation correction of whole-body positron emission tomography (PET) images is controversial, especially because of the required increase in imaging time. In this study, regional tracer distribution in attenuation-corrected and uncorrected images was compared in order to delineate the potential advantages of attenuation correction for clinical application. An ECAT EXACT scanner and a protocol including five to seven bed positions, emission scans of 9 min and post… CONTINUE READING
