Positron emission tomography (PET) is a unique modality for imaging normal and diseased metabolical functions in vivo, in a quantitative manner. To allow for optimum image quality, it is necessary to continuously improve the physical, technological and methodological prerequisites of simultaneous recording. For this purpose, we work to develop innovative reconstruction programs and procedures to correct for the different influences on the quantitative accuracy of PET. Furthermore, methods to extract and analyse diagnostically relevant parameters are studied.
