Syntermed' ReconTools Corrects Perfusion SPECT Images

Syntermed's ReconTools software package performs image reconstruction, quality control and correction for degraded image quality in myocardial perfusion SPECT images.

The solution runs on stand-alone PCs enabling use in labs seeking to upgrade and or refurbish their existing workstations at a cost savings. ReconTools provide reconstructed data sets that can be analyzed by many quantitative platforms. It works with the Emory Cardiac Toolbox (ECTb) as an integrated, complete software solution for myocardial perfusion SPECT imaging.

ReconTools feature eight functions that can be bundled together or customized as plug-and-play modules to meet customer needs. One such feature is the deconvolution approach to compensate for degraded images caused by imaging agents such as I-123 and use of low-energy collimators.

The software reportedly offers automatic iterative motion correction, improving image quality, speed and processing power. The software bundle also includes an automatic reorientation program and correction function that improves the quality of the attenuation maps, produces more accurate images, and aids diagnosis by reducing the number of false positives.
