Title:
Impact of flexible body surface coil and patient table on PET quantification and image quality in integrated PET/MR. 
Abstract:
The surface coils of the Biograph mMR integrated PET/MR system were optimised for PET, but are otherwise unaccounted for. The patient table is still more massive than those of PET/CT devices. The goal was to assess those hardware effects on quantification, count statistics, image quality and scan time both with phantoms and in patients and to investigate their clinical relevance.PET phantom data were acquired with and without the patient table. Image noise was expressed as relative standard devi...    »
