Performance Measurements of Small Animal Positron Emission Tomographs (PETs)
Proposes a standardized methodology for evaluating the performance of PETs designed for animal imaging. Establishes a baseline of system performance in typical imaging conditions independent of camera design and applies to a wide range of camera models and geometries. Represents a subset of measurements that characterize the performance of PETs for specific imaging tasks typically encountered in small laboratory animal imaging facilities. This subset is deemed to be common across all tomographs existing at the time of publication.
