By keeping the arms outside the field-of-view the amount of scatter'> and patient exposure are also much reduced . Given the short acquisition times of a PET/CT36 most patients tolerate to be scanned with their arms raised for the duration of the combined exam. A number of algorithms have been suggested to artificially extend the truncated CT projections and to recover the truncated parts of the measured attenuation map in cases where truncation is observed . " Further work is needed, however, to make such algorithms routinely available for clinical diagnostics.

Patients must be positioned comfortably on the patient examination pallet with their arms raised above their head , if possible, which is standard practice in CT to avoid well-known truncation and banding artefacts (FIGURE 3). 30-32 The subsequent PET acquisition follows closely that of a standard emission scan .
