Semi-automatic analysis of standardised uptake values in serial PET/CT studies in patients with lung cancer and lymphoma
BMC Medical Imaging , 04/24/2012Ly J et al.
Good agreement was shown in assessment of maximum standardised uptake values (SUVmax) changes between manual and semi–automatic method. The semi–automatic analysis was four to five times faster to perform than the manual analysis. These findings show the feasibility of using semi–automatic methods for calculation of SUVmax in clinical routine and encourage further development of programs using this type of methods.
