SPECT/CT Systems

lower SPECT dose

The highest levels of radiation dose in medical imaging are reported in nuclear medicine and pressure is growing for lower dose.

GE, Nuclear imaging, recall

GE Healthcare has initiated a Class I recall of all its nuclear imaging systems and called for its systems to not be operated until the vendor can inspect the scanner. The recall follows the death of a patient after a portion of the scanner fell o...

PET vs. SPECT, nuclear imaging advances

Just when positron emission tomography (PET) appears to be eclipsing single photon emission computed tomography (SPECT) for cardiac imaging, new advances make SPECT more attractive. Both modalities also have suffered setbacks with radiopharmaceuti...

Nuclear imaging, radiation safety, webinar

Radiation exposure has become a major public health concern in both lay and medical publications. In nuclear medicine, the recent introduction of hybrid imaging in the form of SPECT/CT and PET/CT have resulted in increasing concerns regarding addi...
