Abstract

The field of positron emission tomography (PET) has evolved over the past 10 to 15 years from a basic research endeavor to a field in which both research and clinical studies are performed at over 100 institutions and medical facilities throughout the world. Most centers now use tomographs supplied by commercial vendors and operate data analysis systems employing identical software packages. PET scanners have advanced from prototypes assembled more than 15 years ago that imaged a single slice with 32 detectors at a resolution of >2.0 cm full-width-at-half-maximum (FWHM), to current state-of-the-art instruments that simultaneously image as many as 47 slices using nearly 10,000 detector crystals at resolutions of
