Obtaining cardiac images from positron emission tomography, computed tomography, and magnetic resonance imaging: Physical principles

Research output: Contribution to journalArticleAcademicpeer-review

Abstract

Various imaging modalities are available to study the heart, including ultrasound, single photon emission computed tomography, positron emission tomography, computed tomography, and magnetic resonance imaging [1-4]. These modalities are fundamentally different and, consequently, different information is deduced from the images they generate. This paper describes briefly the physical principles of image generation with positron emission tomography, computed tomography, and magnetic resonance imaging.
