Most recently, synthetic CT generation methods have been utilizing deep learning. One major open question with this approach is that it is not clear what MRI images would produce the best synthetic CT images. We investigated how the selection of MRI inputs affect the resulting output using a fixed network. We found that Dixon MRI may be sufficient for quantitatively accurate synthetic CT images and ZTE MRI may provide additional information to capture bowel air distributions.
