AI software could help cut PET scan times in half
Nuclear medicine physicians at the Baclesse Cancer Center in Caen compared image quality between PET images acquired in 45 seconds versus 90 seconds using a digital PET/CT scanner. Half-count scans were reconstructed with a commercially available AI denoising algorithm (SubtlePET, Subtle Medical). Visually, global image quality scores between the two were similar, the researchers found.
“Our study thus supports the routine use of SubtlePET combined with a two-fold faster PET acquisition,” wrote lead author Dr. Kathleen Weyts. The research was published May 20 in the European Journal of…
