Plea for absolute PET Quantification
Adriaan Lammertsma recently published the review “Forward to the Past: The Case for Quantitative PET Imaging” (J Nucl Med 2017, 58(7):1019-1024). Based on his vast experience as a modeller he discusses the advantages of absolute kinetic quantification based on dynamic scans over “semiquantification” using a static scan. His clear message is that any simplified approach must first be validated using fully quantitative methods.
