Quality Assurance of PET Device


Authors: Dr. Zsolt Lengyel , András Herein

The intent of this document is to specify measurements for evaluating performance of positron emission tomographs. The standardized measurements are suitable to compare different tomographs. They can be used during acceptance test to be sure that the tomograph has the same parameters as in vendor’s documentation.
From the following five measurements only the last one is offered by EANM (European Association of Nuclear Medicine). This one is the most complex measure, and many parameters of the picture can be saved from this measure. EANM offers to do this measure once in every year and if there was any change in the tomograph’s hardware or software. The other four measurements are rather to compare vendor’s data with the results of acceptance-test.
