Title:
Dual cardiac-respiratory gated PET: implementation and results from a feasibility study. 
Abstract:
PURPOSE: Spatial resolution in myocardial imaging is impaired by both cardiac and respiratory motion owing to motional blurring. We investigated the feasibility of a dual cardiac-respiratory gated positron emission tomography (PET) acquisition using a clinical PET/computer tomography (CT) scanner. We describe its implementation and present results on the respiratory motion observed. METHODS: The correlation between diaphragmatic excursion measured by real-time magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) an...    »
