Brain metabolism

Case Study
Philips NM Clinical Science Philips Healthcare • USA

Clinical history

This patient was referred to the University of Vermont for a brain scan. The technologist used the Vereos PET/CT scanner to perform the F-18 FDG PET/CT scan. 

Scan parameters
  • 9.7 mCi
  • F-18 FDG
  • 10 min acquisition
  • 1 mm voxel recon

Images and interpretation

Clinical significance

This FDG brain scan, using legacy acquisition time and activity, demonstrated the detail provided by Vereos PET/CT. The interface between the gray and white matter is sharply defined. This can lead to increased confidence in the evaluation of abnormalities. The reconstruction pipeline for Vereos PET/CT preserves the acquired counts, and is able to provide images in a matrix using 1 mm voxels. This reduced the partial volume effect and preserves the resolution of the detector. The isotropic reconstruction used in Vereos allows evaluation and demonstration of detail in multiple planes.

* Results from case studies are not predictive of results in other cases. Results in other cases may vary.
