Figure 7

PET images (coronal slice) illustrating differences in signal quality between gated, gating+, and ungated images. In example A, the activity in the ribs is not well discernible from its surroundings in the gated image; however, in the corresponding gating+ image, the bones have discernible contrast. The gating+ image also shows better definition of the liver and kidneys. In example B, we again see discernible boundaries of the liver and ribs in the gating+ image and not in the gated image. Both images also highlight the global noise reduction provided by gating+. Example A was acquired with 18F-FDG, and example B was acquired with 18F-FBDPMA.
