Respiratory motion correction in PET/CT and PET/MRMS73

We present the headlines of a maximum-likelihood image reconstruction and motion estimation method in positron emission tomography (PET). The basics of PET imaging, Poisson spatial processes and expectation maximisation (EM) reconstruction are revisited. We then introduce our algorithm and the quasi-Newton approach we adopted for motion estimation prom projection data. Finally, we present results on patient PET/CT and PET/MRI data.
