SPECT/CT Systems

The past year saw the release of several new, innovative technologies to improve nuclear imaging in both positron emission tomography (PET) and single-photon emission computed tomography (SPECT). 

PET vs. SPECT, nuclear imaging advances

Just when positron emission tomography (PET) appears to be eclipsing single photon emission computed tomography (SPECT) for cardiac imaging, new advances make SPECT more attractive. Both modalities also have suffered setbacks with radiopharmaceuti...

Single photon emission computed tomography (SPECT) remains a well-entrenched imaging modality for nuclear myocardial perfusion imaging (MPI) more than 30 years after its introduction. Due to SPECT’s reliability, cost-effectiveness and th...
