Quantitative PET study without arterial sampling using HEADTOME5-Dual
1993 - 1997
Investigating Researcher (2)：
Measure concentration in arterial blood equivalent to blood gathering from artery through the left cardiac cavity and realize quantitative measurement without blood gathering, by simultaneously measuring the head on one hand and the chest on the other hand of a HEADTOME 5-Dual consisting of 2 gantries. For the realization of such quantitative measurement, there are a lot of tasks to be tackled such as study of model for removing physical strokes in the left cardiac cavity and the surrounding areas, evaluation of random rise and drop of S/N because of the radioactivity content in the cardiac cavity which becomes too high compared with that in the head, etc.
