Intervention/exposure
Study type
Interventional
Description of intervention(s) / exposure
PET scanning, kinetic analysis, respiratory motion correction. This involves 60 additional minutes of PET scanning (after the routine PET tracer injection up until the usual time of commencement of the routine PET scan at 60 minutes post injection). The information for kinetic analysis and respiratory motion correction are obtained during this 60 minute scan.
