As with any noninvasive imaging study, the target-to-background (signal-to-noise in physical terms) ratio must be optimized. The largest sources of noise on a typical PET scan are background activity and scatter. Background activity is the normal tracer uptake by the body in the physiologic state at the time of imaging. , after recent exercise), then the inherent background activity will increase the amount of noise on the scan, leading to decreased image quality. Because of this, we require that our patients rest during the uptake period (to be explained later) as well as the night before.
