Micro-CT for anatomic referencing in PET and SPECT: radiation dose, biologic damage, and image quality.

Abstract:

UNLABELLED: CT is widely used for anatomic referencing of PET and SPECT images of small animals but requires sufficiently high radiation doses capable of causing significant DNA damage. Therefore, we described the relationship between radiation dose, biologic damage, and image quality to determine whether CT can be used without significantly compromising radiotherapy and tumor development studies. METHODS: The CT dose index generated by the nanoSPECT/CT system was compared with measurements ...
