Respiratory motion correction

Researchers of the Gordon Center (previously CAMIS) have recently presented an approach to respiratory motion correction using simultaneous PET/MR that yields unprecedented improvements in image quality by taking advantage of MR motion information during the PET scan. The approach was tested and validated in rabbits and non-human primates and is now being evaluated in the clinical setting. [2012 JNM Cover]
