JNC: Deep-learning-based methods of attenuation correction for SPECT and PET (Sept/Oct 2023)
Course Overview
This Journal CME activity will provide an introduction to deep-learning-based methods of attenuation correction for SPECT and PET.
Target Audience
This activity is targeted at imaging professionals and is intended to provide the latest information on clinical practice and cutting-edge scientific advances in nuclear cardiology and cardiac imaging.
Learner Objectives

After reading and reflecting upon this article in the Journal Nuclear Cardiology, the learner should be able to:

  • Recognize the basic principles of the photon attenuation and AC in SPECT and PET
  • Be familiar with the conventional non-deep-learning AC methods and identify their drawbacks
  • Be familiar with recent deep-learning-based direct and indirect strategies of AC for SPECT and PET
  • Understand and describe the transfer learning strategies for the μ-map generation
Overall Goal
The purpose of this CME activity in the Journal of Nuclear Cardiology is to increase the learners’ competence in the application of nuclear cardiology strategies in clinical practice.
