Nuclear Imaging Choosing Wisely Five Questions Testing PET/SPECT Systems

The Society of Nuclear Medicine and Molecular Imaging (SNMMI) released a list of specific tests that are commonly ordered—but not always necessary — in nuclear medicine and molecular imaging as...

The introduction of hybrid technology — positron emission tomography/computed tomography (PET/CT) and single-photon emission computed tomography (SPECT)/CT -— has revolutionized the imaging world...

Single photon emission computed tomography (SPECT) remains a well-entrenched imaging modality for nuclear myocardial perfusion imaging (MPI) more than 30 years after its introduction....

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...

Technology in the field of nuclear cardiac imaging — single photon emission computed tomography (SPECT) and positron emission tomography (PET) — has been somewhat stagnant over the past decade....

As production of molybdenum-99 returns to normal with the Canadian Chalk River Laboratories reactor back online and the supply of 99m-technetium stabilizes, the nuclear cardiology community is...

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...

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...
