Verification of the Quantitative Accuracy of the PET/CT System Imaging Chain
The purpose of this study will evaluate new technologies that have been included in the new PCA-9000A PET/CT System.
Confirm PCA-9000A PET/CT System is Effective for Its Intended Use
|Study Design:||Observational Model: Case-Only
Time Perspective: Cross-Sectional
|Official Title:||ROMAN (PCA-9000A) PET/CT System Verification|
|Study Start Date:||November 2012|
|Estimated Primary Completion Date:||February 2013 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)|
To evaluate the new technologies that have been included in the PCA-9000A PET/CT System, the study has the following 3 goals.
- Define and confirm all supported clinical protocols from Low-Dose CT, to PET acquisition and presentation.
- Verification of the quantitative accuracy of the imaging chain.
- Evaluate the performance and stability of the new system and its related quality control and calibration procedures.
The study is an essential step in assessing the quality of the hardware and software defining the new PCA-9000A PET/CT System. Several essential parameters for the acquisition, reconstruction, correction, filtering, and presentation will be estimated or adjusted during this period. The evaluation will confirm PCA-9000A PET/CT System is effective for its intended use.
