Abstract

Purpose: Cardiac PET and SPECT images are known to suffer from degradation due to cardiac and respiratory motion. In this work we describe a dynamic heart phantom, that we designed and built, to simulate both these movements. The phantom can be used: (i) to study the degradation effects due to the heart motion on PET/SPECT images and (ii) to evaluate and optimize motion corrections/compensation techniques for PET/SPECT heart studies.
