- This thesis addresses the effects of respiratory motion on PET/CT data, in terms of signal blurring and incorrect attenuation correction. Respiratory motion leads to overestimation of the tumour volume and incorrect SUV values. We develop a framework for respiratory motion compensation of 4D PET-CT data and demonstrate that the techniques are applicable for both lung and liver data.
