Hyperpolarised metabolic imaging suffers from low resolution, which can hamper quantification due to partial volume effects. In this work, we implement and evaluate Partial-Volume Correction (PVC), which is a correction method applied in Positron Emission Tomography. It is possible to improve spatial resolution characteristics at the boundaries of the object with PVC.
