Advantages

  • Utilizes IDS events, which are usually discarded because they produce noise in PET images, to improve PET scanner sensitivity and image quality 
  • Appropriately corrects and normalizes double coincidences and IDS coincidences generated by a PET scanner
  • Improves sensitivity of PET scans by up to 20%, which will improve diagnostics and reduce the amount of radioactive tracer required
  • Inexpensive to implement because technology only requires a software modification to the PET scanner
