3 July 1998 Imagewise model fitting for generating parametric images in dynamic PET studies
Author Affiliations +
In this study, we explore the use of non-linear regression for model fitting of PET measured kinetics on a pixel-by-pixel basis for generating parametric images of micro-parameters of kinetic models. We evaluate quantitatively the noise propagation of two regression methods using computer simulated data, and examine the feasibility of generating parametric images for two different real PET studies -- a human FDG study and a monkey FDOPA study. The results demonstrated that general image-wise model fitting is practically feasible for dynamic PET studies.
