A method to obtain correct standard uptake values in Pinnacle treatment planning system for target volume delineation

Salehzahi, Farshid; Tse, Jason; Lee, Jonathan; Selvaraj, Jothybasu


Standardized uptake value (SUV) is an advanced tool for quantitative tumor identification and metabolic target volume delineation (TVD) in diagnostic and therapeutic settings. It is thus important to establish a quality assured process to maintain the traceability of data correctly by positron emission tomography (PET) systems. Patient administration of 18fluoro-deoxy-glucose is increasingly delivered by automated infusion systems (AISs). Whenever AIS is used, its accuracy and traceability...[Show more]
