We are pleased to welcome you to this webinar, which focuses on preclinical cardiac PET/MRI, cardiac and respiratory gating and streamlined PET and MRI analysis.
After briefly motivating cardiac and respiratory gating in cardiac imaging, various implementations developed to address cardiac and respiratory gating in MRI and PET will be discussed. Prospective and retrospective gating methods are explained. The self-gated approach, IntraGATE, is introduced, pointing out the principle of operation and main advantages gained using this technique. Building on the principle of exploiting the MR navigator signal to derive details on the cardiac and respiratory motions, the concept of spatially resolved navigators, using PolyGATE, is presented for imaging multiple animals simultaneously.
The Cardiac PET tool from PMOD brings a streamlined workflow to quantitative PET analysis for dynamic PET, or function analysis for gated PET. Similarly, the Cardiac MR tool facilitates function analysis of cardiac cine series such as Bruker’s IntraGATE, and can leverage PMOD’s Artificial Intelligence framework, PAI. PAI is a flexible framework that makes user-defined AI-based segmentation and classification accessible without requiring programming experience.
