PET vs. SPECT, nuclear imaging advances with BFPET

BFPET demonstrates higher resolution in the evaluation of myocardial perfusion in this series of images contrasting the results of a PET scan done with FluoroPharma's fluorine-18 based agent and a SPECT study done with sestamibi. Images were captured during an investigator-initiated study of BFPET conducted at 301 Hospital in Beijing, China.
