Positron emission tomography (PET) enables 3D visualization of vital physiological information, e.g., metabolism, blood flow, and neuroreceptor concentration by using targeted radioisotope-labeled tracers. Quantitative interpretation of PET images is crucial both in diagnostic and therapeutic contexts. As a result of its unique functional capabilities, PET imaging plays a pivotal role in diagnostics and in therapeutic assessment in...
