Dynamic, single-bed FDG PET/CT studies motivate the present study. We have observed that parametric images obtained from the dynamic data measurements provided superior estimates relative to conventional SUV imaging. Several recent reports have been published detailing the technical and clinical applications of the whole body dynamic (WBD) method which manifested in a better delineation of FDG uptake by metastatic carcinomas. In a recent study, it has also been shown that improved lesion contrast to noise ratios were significantly (p
