This paper describes an automatic system for analyzing phantom images from two types of PET/CT scanners. The system was developed for the purpose of obtaining tomographic image quality parameters, which determine a number of different performance parameters, primarily scanner sensitivity, tomographic uniformity, contrast and spatial resolution. The system provides a method for generating and altering image masks used for the analysis of PET images, which are then automatically aligned with the PET data. The system automatically generates Quality Control (QC) reports and is currently being used at clinical PET/CT center.
