Abstract The partial volume effect (PVE) is considered as one of the major degrading factors impacting image quality and hampering the accuracy of quantitative PET imaging in clinical oncology. This effect is the consequence of the limited spatial resolution of whole-body PET scanners, which results in blurring of the generated images by the scanner's response function. A number of strategies have been devised to deal with partial volume effect. However, the lack of consensus on the clinical relevance of partial volume correction and the most appropriate technique to be used in the context of clinical oncology limited their application in clinical setting. This issue is debated in this commentary.
