Functional and Molecular Emission Computed Tomography

Objectives

To further improve and enhance the diagnostic value of emission tomographic imaging systems (PET, SPECT) group-specific long-term aims are focused on the development of optimized image reconstruction strategies as well as tracer-specific pharmacokinetic models. Most recently, instrumentation and algorithm development for optical imaging approaches has become another primary research area. To accomplish our aims, there have been developed recent tools for realistic simulation of tomographic imaging systems using dynamic analytically defined complex anthropomorphic phantoms, for 3D image reconstruction techniques using specific scatter and attenuation correction methods, as well as for tracer kinetic studies using region-based and voxel-based model implementations.
