  • Publication number: 20200342637
    Abstract: A system for PET image reconstruction is provided. The system may obtain PET data of a subject. The PET data may be associated with a plurality of coincidence events, which includes scattering events. The system may also generate a preliminary scatter sinogram relating to the scattering events based on the PET data. The system may also generate a target scatter sinogram relating to the scattering events by applying a scatter sinogram generator based on the preliminary scatter sinogram. The target scatter sinogram may have a higher image quality than the preliminary scatter sinogram. The system may further reconstruct a target PET image of the subject based on the PET data and the target scatter sinogram.

  • Patent number: 10598803
    Abstract: A method for assessing the time of flight (TOF) performance of a positron emission tomography (PET) scanner is provided. The method may include obtaining raw data relating to radiation originating from an object from a PET scan by a PET scanner, the raw data including TOF information. The method may also include generating, based on a back projection algorithm, a first back projection image by reconstructing the raw data including the TOF information. The method may further include generating, based on the back projection algorithm, a second back projection image by reconstructing the raw data excluding the TOF information. The method may further include comparing the first back projection image with the second back projection image. The method may also include assessing, based on the comparison, the TOF performance of the PET scanner.
