    • Semi-Quantitative Metrics in Positron Emission Tomography 

      Adams, Michael (2010)
      The Standardized Uptake Value (SUV) is a method for semiquantitative evaluation of radiotracer accumulation on PET scans. Changes in SUV can be used to determine treatment response. However, SUV measurements are influenced ...
    • Standardization of Small Lesion Contrast in PET Imaging 

      Brookins, Drake Cole (2014)
      Quantitative measurements in PET imaging have recently become more widespread as a way to diagnose and stage many types of malignant cancer. Currently patients need to have follow-up scans performed on the same PET system ...
    • Time-of-Flight PET Compared to Increased Scan Time in Low-Contrast Regions 

      Smith, Timothy Jordan (2011)
      Positron Emission Tomography is a coincidence-detection-based nuclear imaging modality that has increased in clinical prevalence over the last two decades. Measures have recently been taken to improve the practice, specifically ...
