Virtual CT scans cut patient radiation exposure in half during PET/CT studies
A novel artificial intelligence method can be used to generate high-quality ‘PET/CT’ images and subsequently decrease radiation exposure to the patient. The method bypasses the need for CT-based attenuation correction, potentially allowing for more frequent PET imaging to monitor disease and treatment progression without radiation exposure from CT acquisition.
