Cardiac NaF-PET/CT imaging may benefit from motion correction approach

A study in the Journal of Nuclear Medicine showed that a gross patient motion correction technique increased the maximum standardized uptake value and tumor-to-background ratio in NaF-avid lesions by 4.7% and 8.4%, respectively, on cardiac NaF-PET/CT scans of individuals with confirmed multivessel coronary artery disease. Researchers also found that the motion correction approach prompted NaF-avid lesion diagnoses among 11% of those who were previously diagnosed with nonavid lesions.
