Deriving quantitative measures from the medical imaging methods is a key issue for the optimal oncologic therapy, when the anatomical abnormalities and changes of the metabolic state of the tissues need to be characterized. In order to improve the effectiveness of the therapy, the results of medical imaging procedures should be comparable after two or more consecutive scans. There are several tomographic imaging applications (CT, MRI, SPECT and PET), but in this work we will focus on the quantitative capability of PET, because this method provides the most versatile possibilities for quantifying the resulting images.
