Summary of "Impact of Point-Spread Function Reconstruction on Ga-DOTATATE PET/CT Quantitative Imaging Parameters."

The objective of our study was to investigate the impact of point-spread function (PSF) reconstruction and lesion size on Ga-tetraazacyclododecanetetraacetic acid-DPhe1-Tyr3-octreotate (DOTATATE) PET/CT quantitative parameters. A total of 38 patients with 42 Ga-DOTATATE PET/CT studies and 125 lesions were included. Scans were reconstructed with and without PSF modulation. For each lesion, the maximum standardized uptake value (SUV) and peak standardized uptake value (SUVpeak), metabolic tumor volume (MTV), total lesion somatostatin avidity, and tumor somatostatin receptor expression heterogeneity using the AUC method were measured. Intraclass correlation coefficient (ICC) and Bland-Altman analyses were used to compare PSF and non-PSF values. A subgroup analysis was performed to determine the impact of lesion size. Of the 125 lesions, 51 were in the liver, 31 in lymph nodes, 17 in bone, eight in pancreas, four in lung, and 14 in other sites. The ICCs between PSF and non-PSF values were excellent for SUV, SUVpeak, MTV, and total lesion somatostatin avidity (ICC = 0.97- 0.99), and the ICC was good for tumor somatostatin receptor expression heterogeneity (ICC = 0.81). Comparison of PSF with non-PSF values showed a bias (mean percentage change ± SD) of 27.5% ± 14.7% for SUV, 15.5% ± 9.5% for SUVpeak, -18.6% ± 37.6% for MTV, 0.8% ± 28.1% for total lesion somatostatin avidity, and -7.1% ± 11.0% for tumor somatostatin receptor expression heterogeneity. Comparison of PSF with non-PSF values for lesions less than 2 cm ( = 75) showed corresponding biases greater than those for lesions 2 cm or larger ( = 50). PSF reconstruction effected higher values for SUV and SUVpeak, produced decreased values for tumor somatostatin receptor expression heterogeneity, and had a variable effect on MTV and total lesion somatostatin avidity depending on lesion size.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Unequal curvature of the refractive surfaces of the eye. Thus a point source of light cannot be brought to a point focus on the retina but is spread over a more or less diffuse area. This results from the radius of curvature in one plane being longer or shorter than the radius at right angles to it. (Dorland, 27th ed)
