Purpose: Deadtime-count-loss (DTloss) correction using monitor source (MS) requires: 1) uniform fractional DTloss across FOV, 2) high statistics MS images both with & without the object. The aims are validating condition 1 and developing a practical protocol that satisfies conditions 2 with minimal additional study duration.
