King’s College London & Guy’s and St Thomas’ PET Centre
Sarah-May is a Medical Physicist at the King’s College London & Guy’s and St Thomas’ PET Centre, where she has been working since 2015 following completion of the NHS Scientist Training Programme with a specialism in Imaging with Ionising Radiation. In her current role she provides scientific support for a busy clinical and research PET service with three PET/CT scanners and a PET/MR scanner.
Sarah’s recent projects have been varied and have included developing and evaluating scanning protocols for a new PET-CT scanner, undertaking research studies in PET-MR cardiac perfusion imaging and overseeing the radiation
safety aspects in the design and build of a state-of-the-art cyclotron and radiochemistry facility.
A Review of Attenuation Correction in Positron Emission Tomography
In PET, we rely on proper attenuation correction to give us images that accurately represent the distribution of tracer around the patient’s body. This seminar will review the traditional ways of acquiring the data we need for attenuation correction and explain why, with the development of PET-MR hybrid imaging, the issue of attenuation correction has once again become an active area of research.
