Abstract

We examine the behavior of a Bayesian protocol for reconstruction of PET images in terms of the quantitative accuracy of the resulting Region-of-Interest (ROI) statistics. Our protocol uses a rapidly converging algorithm to compute a MAP estimate of the 3D PET image and includes novel methods for accurate attenuation and scatter modeling. The image is modeled using a Gibbs prior whose hyperparameters are estimated simultaneously with the PET image so that no critical user specified parameters are required. We computed ROI statistics over reconstructions of multiple frames of a computer generated brain phantom and an experimental chest phantom scanned using a Siemens/CTI ECAT931 scanner. Results indicate significant improvements in both bias and variance when compared to a standard filtered backprojection (FBP) based protocol.
