Download Emission Tomography: The Fundamentals of PET and SPECT by Miles N. Wernick, John N. Aarsvold PDF

By Miles N. Wernick, John N. Aarsvold

Puppy and SPECT are of contemporary most vital medical-imaging equipment, delivering photos that exhibit sophisticated information regarding physiological approaches in people and animals. Emission Tomography: the basics of puppy and SPECT explains the physics and engineering ideas of those vital functional-imaging tools. The expertise of emission tomography is roofed intimately, together with old origins, medical and mathematical foundations, imaging structures and their elements, photo reconstruction and research, simulation recommendations, and scientific and laboratory functions. The booklet describes the cutting-edge of emission tomography, together with all points of traditional SPECT and puppy, in addition to modern subject matters comparable to iterative photograph reconstruction, small-animal imaging, and PET/CT structures. This publication is meant as a textbook and reference source for graduate scholars, researchers, scientific physicists, biomedical engineers, engineers and physicists within the medical-imaging undefined. Thorough tutorials of primary and complex issues are provided by means of dozens of the best researchers in puppy and SPECT. SPECT has lengthy been a mainstay of medical imaging, and puppy is now one of many world's quickest transforming into scientific imaging options, because of its dramatic contributions to melanoma imaging and different purposes. Emission Tomography: the basics of puppy and SPECT is an important source for figuring out the know-how of SPECT and puppy, the main wide-spread sorts of molecular imaging. *Contains thorough instructional remedies, coupled with assurance of complex themes *Three of the 4 holders of the celebrated Institute of electric and Electronics Engineers scientific Imaging Scientist Award are bankruptcy members *Include colour art

Example text

As explained in Lewellyn and Karp (Chapter 10 in this volume), the decay of each nucleus of a positron-emitting isotope leads to the emission of two gamma rays (Chapter 10, Figure 2) that travel in nearly opposite directions from one another. This feature of PET allows the gamma-ray coordinates to be measured without a physical collimator by a scheme called electronic collimation, which works as follows. 4 This assumes that the camera has uniform spatial sensitivity. If one were instead to specify in advance the total number of gamma rays to be detected and stop counting once that number was reached, then the numbers of detected events in the pixels of the projection image would obey a multinomial distribution, and not a Poisson distribution.

1. Factors Influencing PET Image Reconstruction PET projection data are usually better represented by the simple parallel projection model than are SPECT data, but PET also has several physical factors that complicate the imaging model. These are explained in Lewellyn and Karp (Chapter 10 in this volume), and are illustrated graphically in Figures 3 and 4 of that chapter. qxd 28/8/04 02:29 PM Page 18 18 Miles N. Wernick and John N.

It should be noted that particular specialties also use their own particular coordinate systems. For example, cardiac image slices are usually oriented with reference to the long axis of the left ventricle, not the long axis of the body; and the field of functional brain mapping uses its own standardized coordinate system defined by brain landmarks. V. RADIOPHARMACEUTICALS AND THEIR APPLICATIONS ET imaging of a particular organ or disease begins with development of a radiopharmaceutical that will interact with the body in a way that produces an informative image.
