Course Detail
Course Components:
The course begins with an introduction to PET imaging and physics, the image formation process, and how PET is a molecular imaging modality. Theory and algorithms for iterative tomographic image reconstruction will be introduced. The course will conclude with a study of objective measures of PET image quality, including ROC analysis methods and numerical observers. At completion, the student will have an understanding of the PET image formation process and common applications of PET imaging.
