Technical Aspects (14:00)
Single-Photon Emission Computed Tomography is an imaging technique that uses gamma radiation to provide true 3D information; it is similar to scintigraphy. Topics include: the development of SPECT, the imaging process, and radiotracers.
Medical experts use SPECT to examine organ function and detect specific types of tumors. Topics include: image quality, myocardial perfusion imaging, functional brain imaging, infection and inflammation, and oncology.
Normal brain scans reveal symmetry in both hemispheres; SPECT helps identify abnormalities. Topics include: carotid stenosis, cerebral infarction, subdural hematoma, Alzheimer's disease, frontotemporal dementia, the myocardial perfusion study, and more.
Nuclear Medicine (01:08)
The combination of SPECT and CT system images is a valuable tool for diagnosis and treatment plans. It helps provide accurate attenuation correction of radiopharmaceutical distribution.
