Table 2 Mean RSD of the RCs for each reconstruction protocol and across all protocols

From: SUVref: reducing reconstruction-dependent variation in PET SUV

Reconstruction protocol Mean RSD with SUV max (%) Mean RSD with SUV peak (%) Mean RSD with SUV ref (%) Mean RSD with SUV ref,peak (%)
OSEM 2.81 1.59 2.28 1.46
PSF 3.25 1.80 2.00 1.49
TOF1 4.69 2.32 2.58 1.70
TOF2 5.70 2.51 2.68 1.72
All protocols 13.60 7.75 2.85 1.72
  1. Mean RSD of the RCs for the 15 repeats per reconstruction protocol and across all reconstruction protocols for SUVmax, SUVref and SUVpeak. Reduction in RSD with both SUVref and SUVpeak for all intra-reconstruction protocol comparisons, in addition to across all protocols, was significant (P < 0.01 with paired two-tailed Student's t-test).
