Image Formation Chain Optimization in Multimodal Emission Tomography
Quantification and Respiratory Motion Management for SPECT Imaging

Population-based metrics for diagnosis and patient stratification are important aids for nuclear medicine physicians when dealing with various cardiological, neurological, and oncological indications. A necessary input to such approaches based on SPECT is a standardized, artifact-free dataset. The goals of this project include improvement of standardization through quantitative imaging and reduction of respiratory motion artifacts through data-driven techniques.

The work is being carried out in close cooperation withOpens external link in new window Clinic of Nuclear Medicine at the University of Erlangen.
