Motion Correction

Educational objectives:
  1. Understand the principle of gated acquisition.
  2. Have knowledge about devices and methods to detect cardiac/respiratory motion.
  3. Understand the impact of motion on image quality and quantification and recognise image artefacts caused by respiratory motion within attenuation corrected PET images.
  4. Understand the clinical use of cardiac gated SPECT/PET – when do we need it, what does it provide and what can we measure with it (functional imaging).
  5. Have knowledge about methods to compensate for motion during dynamic imaging.
  6. Understand the use of dynamic PET imaging– when do we need it, what does it provide and what can we measure with it (functional imaging).
Summary:
This continuing education session is directed towards medical physicists and physicians who would like to have a deeper understanding on how motion correction is performed and how it is used in a clinical setting.
Devices and methods for motion correction (cardiac gating, respiratory gating and dynamic imaging) will be reviewed and the impact on image quality as well as the impact on quantification will be analysed. The clinical use of cardiac gated SPECT and PET imaging will be reviewed. Dynamic PET imaging (functional imaging) will also be reviewed.

Key Words:
Motion Correction, Cardiac Gating, Respiratory Gating, Dynamic Imaging, PET, SPECT
