Dynamic Positron Emission Tomography (dPET) is a functional imaging technique that can be used to measure the time course of a radiotracer within certain regions of a patient. This is potentially useful in Oncology because certain aspects of tumour function are more directly related to the rate of change of tracer uptake, rather than the uptake at any one time point. dPET is limited by the low number of counts in each frame, leading to a poor signal to noise ratio in the final images. In this talk, the possibility of addressing this issue using a range of advanced image reconstruction techniques, designed specifically to suppress noise, is discussed
