Carney Fig. four. 1 Left. an invaluable occasion happens while a positron annihilates to supply back-to-back 511 keV photons which are detected. correct. there's a finite chance that one or either photons in this case have interaction with the physique, thereby lowering (attenuating) the variety of detected priceless occasions. The scattered photon will not be detected or could be detected as a scatter occasion as proven. The attenuation correction issue supplies the ratio of important occasions that might be measured within the absence of attenuation to the particular variety of helpful occasions detected Fig. four. 2 The attenuation correction components (ACFs) for 511 keV photons as a functionality of the pathlength via water, giving a sign of the common ACFs encountered in whole-body puppy imaging. ACFs for pathlengths of roughly 50 cm or larger, reminiscent of traces of reaction throughout the middle of enormous sufferers, are within the thousands Equation four. 2 supplies the likelihood for occasions alongside a given line of reaction no longer being on hand for size and the multiplicative attenuation correction issue (ACF) for the road of reaction is exactly the inverse of this chance ACF(LOR) = ∫ m ( x )511 keV dx e LOR . (4. three) with a view to practice attenuation correction what's wanted is the set of line integrals in the course of the linear attenuation map at 511 keV such as the geometry of the bought puppy information. the elemental step in CT-based attenuation correction is to exploit the CT photographs to generate the linear attenuation map at 511 keV. Figure 4. 2 indicates the puppy attenuation correction elements (ACFs) for pathlengths via water as a functionality of the pathlength, that are indicative of the values more often than not encountered in medical puppy imaging. For a pathlength of 20 cm the ACF is nearly 7, supplying a coarse higher restrict at the values encountered in mind imaging. with regards to whole-body imaging the utmost ACFs are a lot better, and for pathlengths of fifty cm or extra, common of pathlengths throughout the heart of huge sufferers, the ACFs are within the thousands. this means that below 1 out of a hundred annihilation occasions happening within the heart of very huge sufferers that might be detectable are literally detected as a result of next interplay with the physique. determine four. three exhibits coronal puppy pictures of a similar PET-CT learn reconstructed with (left) and with no (right) attenuation correction utilized. specific positive aspects noticeable within the snapshot with no attenuation correction are the “hot lungs” and the fairly excessive uptake close to the physique contour in comparison to the physique inside. for instance, the uptake in general liver tissue, visible to be relatively homogeneous within the attenuation corrected snapshot, sharply raises in going from the physique inside towards the physique contour. most of these gains are on the topic of the relative measure of attenuation Fig. four. three Coronal puppy photographs of an analogous FDG PET/CT scientific examine reconstructed with (left) and with no (right) attenuation correction utilized a ssociated with traces of reaction passing via these areas.
