Abstract

Computationally intensive techniques that offer potential clinical use have arisen in nuclear medicine. Examples include iterative reconstruction, 3D PET data acquisition and reconstruction, and 3D image volume manipulation including image registration. One obstacle in achieving clinical acceptance of these techniques is the computational time required. This study focuses on methods to reduce the computation time for 3D PET reconstruction through the use of fast computer hardware, vector and parallel programming techniques, and algorithm optimization. The strengths and weaknesses of i860 microprocessor based workstation accelerator boards are investigated in implementations of 3D PET reconstruction.
