Abstract:Purpose: It may be challenging to select the optimal scan duration for single-photon emission computed tomography (SPECT) protocols because the activity distribution characteristics can differ in every scan. Using simulations and experiments, we investigated whether the scan duration can be optimized for every scan separately by evaluating the activity distribution during scanning. We refer to this as adaptive scanning. Methods: The feasibility of adaptive scanning was evaluated for the detection of extrahepat… Show more
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and understand research articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by students researchers from around the world and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
