Project: Evaluation of data quality in TOF PET using a modified NEC measure and reconstructed images

project duration
15-JAN-10 – 14-MAY-10
abstract
Goal: Determination the Noise Equivalent Counts (NEC) formula for Time-of-Flight Positron Emission Tomography. Using phantoms and possibly simulations of phantoms we plan to study the relationship between a draft formula for TOF NEC calculation and the clinical Signal to Noise ratio. The obtained formula will allow for a more accurate and reliable image quality evaluation method for TOF PET.
