Effect of extended field-of-view approaches on the accuracy of stopping power ratio estimation for single-energy computed tomography simulators

CONCLUSIONS: When an eFOV method is used, the SPR variation in phantoms considerably increases for all TEM rods, especially for lung TEM rods. This phenomenon may substantially increase the uncertainty of HU-to-SPR conversion. Therefore, image reconstruction with a standard FOV size is recommended.PMID:37170691 | DOI:10.1002/acm2.14010
