SPECT-CT

UltraSPECT, dose management, lower dose SPECT

UltraSPECT's image reconstruction software can be used on older SPECT systems to allow lower-dose imaging. This is an example of the software's imaging capability using between 30-50 percent less dose.

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.
