Example Results from Research
Coronal views of cardiac PET/CT acquisition for assessment of myocardial perfusion. Left column demonstrates common artifact from mismatched attenuation correction. Right column shows images after proposed automatic correction method based on ensuring Radon consistency in PET data. (Alessio, PE Kinahan, K Champley, J Caldwell, "Attenuation-Emission Alignment in Cardiac PET/CT Based on Consistency Conditions," Medical Physics, vol 37:3, pp 1191-1200, 2010. website.)
Visualization of absolute regional myocardial blood flow estimates derived from dynamic cardiac PET imaging at rest and stress states. Uses software (UW-QPP) developed at the University of Washington for processing and visualization of dynamic PET data. Alessio, Caldwell, Butterworth, Bassingthwaighte.
