JNC: Dedicated cardiac SPECT may produce improved images

07/9/2013 | MolecularImaging.net

Researchers at the University of Ottawa have found that dedicated cardiac SPECT cameras may yield improved image resolution over traditional SPECT systems for assessment of left ventricular parameters in heart disease patients after myocardial infarction. The researchers, whose work was published in the Journal of Nuclear Cardiology, conducted gated blood-pool imaging on 48 patients using the dedicated SPECT system and traditional imaging. "Reprojection of the gated dedicated cardiac SPECT image provides an effective means of creating traditional planar blood-pool datasets," researchers said.
