Na próxima sexta-feira, dia 5 de Fevereiro, o IBEB receberá o professor Stefaan Vandenberghe, investigador da Medical Image and signal processing (MEDISIP) da Universidade de Gent (Bélgica). O nosso convidado fará um seminário com o título “PET-MRI: a review of challenges and solutions in the development of integrated multimodality imaging” e que terá lugar na sala de seminários do IBEB às 10 horas. A entrada é livre.
The integration of positron emission tomography (PET) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) has been an ongoing research topic for the last 20 years. This talk gives an overview of the different developments and the technical problems associated with combining PET and MRI in one system. After explaining the different detector concepts for integrating PET-MRI and minimising interference the limitations and advantages of different solutions for the detector and system are described for preclinical and clinical imaging systems. The different integrated PET-MRI systems are described in detail. Besides detector concepts and system integration the challenges and proposed solutions for attenuation correction and the potential for motion correction and resolution recovery are also discussed.
