Positron emission tomography (PET) is an imaging method. It is used in neuroimaging for molecular neuroimaging. PET was also much used for functional neuroimaging activation studies in the 1990's, but now functional magnetic resonance imaging has mostly taken over.

Among the variable in a PET scanning are:

PET scanner maker 
Siemens, CTI, General Electric
PET scanner model 
E.g., 953B-PET
O-15 Water
E.g., Oxygen-15
Delivery method 
E.g., Bolus infusion
Amount delivered 
E.g. Becquerel or Concentration with flow rate and duration of infusion.
Duration of scanning 
E.g., two minutes.
Scanner mode 
Dynamic, integrated counts
Laboratory of experiment 
The PET scanning lab.
Number of slices 
Number of tomographic slices
Reconstruction filter 
E.g. Hanning 8.5 mm
Axial field of view 
E.g., 15.2 cm
Physical variable measured, e.g., "CBF", "binding potential"

[edit] Dynamic PET

The analysis of dynamic PET may rely on input curve estimation from independent component analysis[1] or clustering.[2]
