Clinical history

This 57 year-old man was referred to the University of Pennsylvania for a 18F-FDG PET/CT scan on the Ingenuity TF PET/CT system. The technologist used Monte Carlo single scatter simulation (MC-SSS) to perform the exam.

Scan parameters
  • 18F-FDG
  • 14.98 mCi
  • 554 MBq
  • 106 min pi
  • 180 sec/bed

Images and interpretation

Physician impression

Monte-Carlo-based single-scatter simulation offers a more robust method of scatter correction for exceptional and consistent image quality. Occasional artifacts may appear with the previous methods.

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