SPECT-CT

  • Prem Soman, M.D., director of nuclear cardiology at the Heart and Vascular Institute, University of Pittsburgh, and president-elect of the American Society of Nuclear Cardiology (ASNC), explained advances in PET and SPECT imaging and the learning curve involved in reading scans from the new CZT...

  • David Wolinsky, M.D., director of nuclear cardiology at Cleveland Clinic Florida and past-president of the American Society of Nuclear Cardiology (ASNC), discusses advancements in nuclear imaging and some of the issues facing the subspecialty.

  • Molecular Dynamics has successfully completed the first phase of a clinical trial to evaluate the Valiance X12 whole-body cadmium zinc telluride (CZT)-based digital SPECT/CT prototype with promising results.

  • Nuclear myocardial perfusion imaging (MPI) with positron emission tomography (PET) and single-photon emission computed tomography (SPECT) have been the gold standard for noninvasive detection of coronary ischemia and infarcts. However, the high radiation doses patients receive are making some...

  • Siemens Healthcare has introduced the Symbia Evo Excel SPECT (single-photon emission computed tomography) system—a new version of the company’s Symbia E system that combines SPECT image resolution and detector sensitivity with the smallest room size requirement in its class.
