Seminar: Rigid Motion Correction for Positron Emission Tomography Brain Imaging

Speaker: Matthew Spangler-Bickell, PhD, KULeuven, Belgium
Abstract: A rigid motion correction technique for PET brain imaging has been developed and applied in animal and clinical studies. Results will be presented from a study on the effect of aneasthesia on the uptake of FDG in the rat brain, using fully conscious and unrestrained rats. Results from implementing the motion correction technique on four clinical PET scanners are also presented. In addition, a spatially variant resolution modelling technique which could be used in conjunction with motion correction will be presented.
