Technical Aspects (12:11)

FREE PREVIEW

Positron Emission Tomography is an imaging technique for observing metabolic processes in the body; a CT x-ray scan helps provide 3D imaging. Topics include: the development of PET, radiotracers, and the image process.

Operations (14:59)

Minimized radiation doses is one benefit of PET scans; PET can be used for diagnostics and therapy response assessment. Topics include: radiotracers, attenuation correction, 2D/3D reconstruction, time of flight PET, current applications, and additional applications.

Interpretation (10:03)

PET scans are often read in combination with CT or MRI scans; PET is most useful when combined with anatomical imaging. Topics include: FDG, oncological imaging, imaging procedures, image sets, equipment cost, and the future of PET.

Description

This program, the first in a two-part series on nuclear medicine, includes a brief history of Positron-Emission Tomography in medical imaging and an explanation of radiotracers and the means of their detection in the imaging process. It discusses preparation of the radiotracers and offers overviews of attenuation correction, 2D and 3D reconstruction, and "Time of Flight" technique. The program describes the applications of PET in oncology, neuroimaging, cognitive neuroscience, and other areas of diagnosis and research. The program also covers use of 18F-FDG and provides an overview of the FDG PET/CT scanning procedure, as well as a general discussion on image scales and examples of tumor imaging. It concludes with a brief look at the perceived future of PET imaging technology.
