KINETIC PARAMETER ESTIMATION WITH POSITRON EMISSION TOMOGRAPHY

 

Dr. Mustafa Kamaşak

 

Computer Engineering Dept, Istanbul Technical University

 


Abstract:

 

 

In this talk, I am going to focus on challenges associated with dynamic positron emission tomography (PET) imaging. In particular, kinetic parameter estimation techniques will be explained. Kinetic parameters are typically used for pharmacokinetic studies and physiological measurements. Therefore, reliability of the estimated parameters is very important. It is also important to understand the effects of noisy PET measurements and model inaccuracies on the accuracy and precision of the estimated kinetic parameters. In the talk, the existing studies and challenges in the analytical assessment of estimation reliability will be discussed.
