Abstract

In order to improve reconstructed image quality for cone-beam collimator SPECT, we have developed and implemented a fully 3D reconstruction, using an ordered subsets expectation maximization (OSEM) algorithm, along with a volumetric system model-cone-volume system model (CVSM), a modified attenuation compensation, and a 3D depth-and angle-dependent resolution and sensitivity correction. SPECT data were acquired in a 128×128 matrix, in 120 views with a single circular orbit. Two sets of numerical Défrise phantoms were used to simulate CBC SPECT scans, and low noise and scatter-free projection dataseis were obtained using the SimSET Monte Carlo package. The reconstructed images, obtained using OSEM with a line-length system model (LLSM) and a 3D Gaussian post-filter, and OSEM with FVSM and a 3D Gaussian post-filter were quantitatively studied. Overall improvement in the image quality has been observed, including better transaxial resolution, higher contrast-to-noise ratio between hot and cold disks, and better accuracy and lower bias in OSEM-CVSM, compared with OSEM-LLSM.
