13 Artefacts due to truncation of the CT field of view: (a) CT, (b) PET, (c) fused PET and CT • CT scan parameters For the reasons given above, the CT part of a PET/CT scan is not usually suitable as a substitute for a diagnostic CT. The scan is required for attenuation correction of the PET data and to provide anatomic localization only, and the acquisition parameters are chosen to achieve both of these while minimizing the radiation dose. 8 s) and, for attenuation correction only, this can be reduced to extremely low values.
The CT is used to attenuation correct the PET data, and corrected images are available at the end of study. The PET takes up the vast majority of the scanning time patients are not required to fast. Intravenous administration of the tracer is performed in a separate room to the scanning suite and the patient is left quietly, preferably lying down, for the tracer uptake period of 60–90 minutes. Injected doses tend to be lower (400 MBq, 10 mCi) in Europe and higher (400–800 MBq, 10–20 mCi) in the USA.
