QIBA FDG-PET/CT Standardized Uptake Value (SUV) Technical Subcommittee Charge

The objective of this subcommittee is to build a common reference DICOM test image that can be generated by each scanner and read on PET DICOM display stations to check information fidelity (i.e. next step beyond DICOM conformance statement)


  • Collected DICOM PET/CT images of the same reference phantom from scanners from GE, Philips, Siemens
  • Image data collated and compared to DICOM header information

Next Steps:

  • Discussion with scanner manufacturers and 3rd party display systems to find out what information and/or resources can be *shared
  • Determine expert(ise) from each company to participate in discussion
  • First-pass discussion to define test DICOM image set (KEY STEP)
  • Evaluation and modification
  • Explore IHE process for manufacturer-driven roll-out
  • Explore potential for moving further up the data generation stream, i.e., closer to raw data


  • Do we need to have a neutral broker (e.g. NEMA/MITA)?
