2023/10: Relative Patlak Plot Now Available on Commercial PET Scanners for Clinical Use

By | October 28, 2023

The Relative Patlak Plot method, which was developed by our lab in 2018, is now made available on commercial PET scanners by a major manufacturer for clinical use. Compared to other methods, this method does not require the early-time blood input function and is therefore much easier to integrate with a clinical scan protocol for parametric imaging.

A clinical example of applying this technique for whole-body parametric imaging on a GE clinical PET scanner is shown in a recent Clinical Nuclear Medicine report by investigators from University Hospital Zurich and GE Healthcare.
