There are currently three major trends in cardiac nuclear perfusion imaging technology: advances in detector hardware, improved software and new radiotracers. These advances have enhanced the...

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is alerting healthcare professionals to stop using CardioGen-82 for cardiac positron emission tomography (PET) scans. The manufacturer, Bracco...

Much of nuclear imaging depends on a steady supply of an isotope called molybdenum-99 (Mo-99). A byproduct of nuclear fission, Mo-99 is used to produce another radioactive substance, technetium-...

Our profession faces one of the most significant crises in its history,” said Michael Graham, M.D., president of the Society of Nuclear Medicine (SNM), regarding the shortage of nuclear medicine...

Ruptured vulnerable plaque (VP) is blamed for the majority of acute myocardial infarctions and many strokes, but there is extensive debate over which modalities are best suited to detect these...

June 16, 2009 - In response to the molybdenum 99 (Mo-99) supply shortage, Covidien sent out a letter to its customers informing them of the anticipated Covidien generator and unit dose (UD) Tc 99m...

Myocardial perfusion imaging (MPI) using single photon emission computed tomography/computed tomography (SPECT/CT) is an application that has been recently bolstered by the development of...

If the case went to court for whether positron emission tomography (PET) or single, photon emission computed tomography (SPECT) is better suited for myocardial perfusion imaging, experts say the...
