Fat-constrained 18F-FDG PET reconstruction in hybrid PET/MR imaging

Published inThe Journal of nuclear medicine, vol. 55, no. 10, p. 1643-1649
Publication date2014

Fusion of information from PET and MR imaging can increase the diagnostic value of both modalities. This work sought to improve (18)F FDG PET image quality by using MR Dixon fat-constrained images to constrain PET image reconstruction to low-fat regions, with the working hypothesis that fatty tissue metabolism is low in glucose consumption.
