The growing success of Positron Emission Tomography (PET) combined with X-ray computerised tomography (PET/CT) and magnetic resonance imaging (PET/MR) has led to the evolution of molecular imaging modalities that assist in improving diagnosis and staging of disease. Emerging PET imaging is used to drive patient therapy, therefore high resolution and reliable image quantification are important factors. Image reconstruction methods have a key role in converting the measurement to a meaningful and accurate representation of the molecular distribution. This seminar will discuss advanced reconstruction methods that are utilised to account for the complicated physics of the acquisition process and other factors in order to improve the imaging resolution and potentially quantitative accuracy.
