Study: Novel PET technique may improve brain images

2021-06-14

Research presented at the SNMMI virtual annual meeting showed combining PET imaging with a motion tracking external device designed to capture measurements of head movement may generate detailed PET brain images with higher resolution than static reference scans. "Our technique not only compensates for the negative effects of head motion on PET image quality, but it also leverages the increased sampling information associated with imaging of moving targets to enhance the effective PET resolution," said researcher Yanis Chemli.
