Artifacts in positron emission tomography (PET)/computed tomography imaging can result from a number of factors. Presence of imaging artifacts affects interpretation and can sometimes render the image uninterpretable. Correction of artifacts can be attempted by reprocessing of data. In the present study, one PET maximum intensity projection image artifact was corrected by employing the method of retro-reconstruction.
