Summary of "Towards fast whole-body PET/MR: Investigation of PET image quality versus reduced PET acquisition times."

The trend towards faster acquisition protocols in whole-body positron emission tomography/magnetic resonance (PET/MR) arises the question of whether short PET data acquisition protocols in a whole-body multi-station context allow for reduced PET acquisition times while providing adequate PET image quality and accurate quantification parameters. The study goal is to investigate how reducing PET acquisition times affects PET image quality and quantification in whole-body PET/MR in patients with oncologic findings.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Improvement in the quality of an x-ray image by use of an intensifying screen, tube, or filter and by optimum exposure techniques. Digital processing methods are often employed.

Improvement of the quality of a picture by various techniques, including computer processing, digital filtering, echocardiographic techniques, light and ultrastructural MICROSCOPY, fluorescence spectrometry and microscopy, scintigraphy, and in vitro image processing at the molecular level.

The production of an image obtained by cameras that detect the radioactive emissions of an injected radionuclide as it has distributed differentially throughout tissues in the body. The image obtained from a moving detector is called a scan, while the image obtained from a stationary camera device is called a scintiphotograph.

X-ray image-detecting devices that make a focused image of body structures lying in a predetermined plane from which more complex images are computed.

A method of delineating blood vessels by subtracting a tissue background image from an image of tissue plus intravascular contrast material that attenuates the X-ray photons. The background image is determined from a digitized image taken a few moments before injection of the contrast material. The resulting angiogram is a high-contrast image of the vessel. This subtraction technique allows extraction of a high-intensity signal from the superimposed background information. The image is thus the result of the differential absorption of X-rays by different tissues.
