ABSTRACT: The growing success of Positron Emission Tomography (PET) combined with X-ray computerized tomography (PET/CT) and magnetic resonance imaging (PET/MR) has led to the evolution of molecular imaging modalities and assist in improving diagnosis and staging of disease. Emerging PET imaging is used to follow patient therapy, therefore high resolution and reliable image quantification are important factors. Image reconstruction methods have a key role in converting the measurement to a meaningful and accurate representation of the molecular function. This seminar will discuss advanced reconstruction methods that are utilized to account for the complicated acquisition process and improve the imaging resolution and quantitative accuracy.
