Respiratory and cardiac motions represent important sources of image degradation in both PET and computed tomography (CT) studies that need to be taken into account and compensated to improve image quality and quantitative accuracy. This review describes the hardware needed to perform respiratory and cardiac gating with PET and PET/CT systems. In particular, most of the proposed motion-tracking devices for the management of respiratory, cardiac, and multidimensional movements are described and compared. Some advanced applications in PET and PET/CT made possible by the gating technology are considered and analyzed.

Abstract

Respiratory and cardiac motions represent important sources of image degradation in both PET and computed tomography (CT) studies that need to be taken into account and compensated to improve image quality and quantitative accuracy. This review describes the hardware needed to perform respiratory and cardiac gating with PET and PET/CT systems. In particular, most of the proposed motion-tracking devices for the management of respiratory, cardiac, and multidimensional movements are described and compared. Some advanced applications in PET and PET/CT made possible by the gating technology are considered and analyzed.
