Abstract: The resolution of a PET scanner (2.5-4.5mm for brain imaging) is similar to the thickness of the cortex in the (human) brain (2.5mm on average), hampering accurate activity distribution reconstruction. Many techniques to compensate for the limited resolution during or post-reconstruction have been proposed in the past and have been shown to improve the quantitative accuracy. In this study, state-of-the-art reconstruction techniques are compared on a voxel-basis for quantification accuracy and group analysis using both simulated and measured data of healthy volunteers and patients with epilepsy.
