The Photometry of Undersampled Point Spread Functions
"... An undersampled point spread function may interact with the microstructure of a solidstate detector such that the total flux detected can depend sensitively on where the PSF center falls within a pixel. Such intrapixel sensitivity variations will not be corrected by flat field calibration and may ..."

Buvat I. Fully 3D Monte Carlo reconstruction in SPECT: a feasibility study. Phys Med Biol
, 2005
"... In single photon emission computed tomography (SPECT) with parallel hole collimation, image reconstruction is usually performed as a set of bidimensional (2D) analytical or iterative reconstructions. This approach ignores the tridimensional (3D) nature of scatter and detector response function that ..."

A Postprocessing Method for Compensation of Scatter and Collimator Blurring in SPECT: A ProofofConcept Study A POSTPROCESSING METHOD IN SPECT • Yan and Zeng 83
, 2009
"... Attenuation, scatter, and blurring are 3 major contributors to SPECT image degradation. Image reconstruction without compensation for these degradations results in reduced contrast and reduced quantitative accuracy. In this proofofconcept study, we present an efficient postprocessing method to co ..."

to compensate for the scatter and blurring effect in SPECT. Methods: A raw image is first reconstructed with attenuation correction only. Then, a 2dimensional (2D) point spread function (PSF) in the image domain is estimated to model the scatter and blurring. This spatially variant 2D PSF is fitted
ITERATIVE CORRECTION FOR SPECT IMAGE DISTORTED BY COLLIMATOR’S CHARACTERISTIC
"... The projection data of the emission activity of interests is blurred by the point response function of the collimator that is used to define the range of directions where photons can be detected. The point response function of the collimator is not spatially invariant, but it depends on the distance ..."

Implementation of Sensitivity and Resolution Modeling for SPECT with ConeBeam Collimator
"... We implemented a fully3D ordered subsets expectation maximization (OSEM) algorithm with compensation of attenuation, distancedependent blurring (DDB) and sensitivity modeling for SPECT performed with conebeam collimator (CBC). The experimentally obtained detector response to point sources across ..."

Fully 3D Monte Carlo reconstruction in SPECT: proof of concept and is it worthwhile? 1 Abstract—In Single Photon Emission Computed Tomography

This approach ignores the 3D nature of scatter and detector response function that affect the detected signal. To deal with the 3D nature of the image formation p ..."

SPECT imaging: the spatial distribution of detected photons about a point source in a scatter medium
"... When photon scattering around a point source in a scatter medium is considered in isolation, the distribution of the scattering sites is radially symmetric and exponentially decreasing in frequency. Discontinuities in the scattering medium will cause a disruption in this radial symmetry. However, wh ..."

, when the limited intrinsic energy resolution of the gamma camera, the energy acceptance window and the collimator response are included in the consideration, the distribution of the scattering sites of photons accepted by the gamma camera is complex. Monte Carlo techniques (EGS4) have been used
Improved 3D correction for partial volume effects
 in brain SPECT. Hum Brain Map
, 1997
"... Abstract: An improved method for correction of partial volume effects (PVE) in brain SPECT is proposed. It is fully threedimensional, does not require particular patient positioning, and works with scans only partially covering the brain. The location of functionally inactive brain regions (primari ..."

Quantitative validation was performed using a phantom containing a test region in which multiple parallel acrylic plates thinner
SYSTEM MATRIX COMPUTATION FOR ITERATIVE RECONSTRUCTION ALGORITHMS IN SPECT BASED ON DIRECT MEASUREMENTS
"... A method for system matrix calculation in the case of iterative reconstruction algorithms in SPECT was implemented and tested. Due to a complex mathematical description of the geometry of the detector setup, we developed a method for system matrix computation that is based on direct measurements of ..."
