Abstract

This article presents and validates a newly developed GATE model of the Siemens Inveon trimodal imaging platform. Fully incorporating the positron emission tomography (PET), single-photon emission computed tomography (SPECT), and computed tomography (CT) data acquisition subsystems, this model enables feasibility studies of new imaging applications, the development of reconstruction and correction algorithms, and the creation of a baseline against which experimental results for real data can be compared. Model validation was based on comparing simulation results against both empirical and published data. The PET modality was validated using the NEMA NU-4 standard. Validations of SPECT and CT modalities were based on assessment of model accuracy compared to published and empirical data on the platform. Validation results show good agreement between simulation and empirical data of approximately.
