PET-SORTEO is a Monte Carlo-based simulation tool that is able to generate realistic PET data in accordance with the numerical phantom description, as well as with the scanner geometry and physical characteristics. The software takes into account most of the phenomena that alter the final image quality.


It has been thoroughly validated and used for the geometry of the Siemens Inveon preclinical scanner [1], the Siemens R4 and Focus220 scanners [3], and for the geometry of the Ecat Exact+ scanners [4, 5]. A full description of the simulation model and their related parameters is given in the validation papers [1-5]. PET-SORTEO has been used in numerous studies, particularly for the validation or performance assessment of PET data correction/reconstruction and data processing methods [6-19].




Please contact Marie-Claude Gregoire for further information and to discuss any projects that could use this tool.
