Course Summary:
This webinar will provide a practical overview for simulating and reconstructing realistic data in planar gamma ray imaging, SPECT, and PET.  
It will consist of the following:
- Promote the open-source phantom library for SPECT/PET developed by the 2021-2023 PIDSC intern. 
- Provide an overview of the principles and importance of simulation for SPECT/PET plus benchmarks.  
- Discuss the process of building simple and realistic simulation for SPECT/PET in GATE.
- Describe steps to analyze the simulated data with ROOT. 
- Explore approaches to reconstruct the simulated data with CASTOR plus provide benchmarks.  
- Share practical tips and step-by-step guidance for efficient practices.

Course Objectives:

  • Build and run realistic simulation using open-source phantoms and software (GATE).
  • Analyze the simulated data with open-source software (ROOT).
  • Reconstruct the simulated data with open-source software (CASTOR).
  • Download and Use the benchmark examples emulating clinical acquisition.

CE Information:
CE Credit applications for physicians, pharmacists, physicists and technologists are pending. Check back for updates regarding CE Credit status.
