Abstract: We compare dynamic PET temporal compression using optimal sampling schedule design, principal component analysis (PCA) in the image domain, and principal component analysis in the sinogram domain. For region-of-interest quantification, sinogram-domain PCA is combined with the Huesman algorithm to quantify from the sinograms directly without requiring full frame reconstruction. Using a simulated phantom FDG brain study and three clinical studies, we evaluate the fidelity of the compressed data for estimation of local cerebral metabolic rate of glucose by a four-compartment model. Our results show that using a (noise-normalized) PCA in the sinogram-domain gives similar compression ratio and quantitative accuracy to OSS, but with much better precision. These results indicate that sinogram-domain PCA for dynamic PET can be a useful preprocessing stage for PET compression and estimation applications.
