A report released by IMV Medical Information Division found that providers of nuclear medicine (NM)...

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

Diagnostic imaging is generally considered safe and noninvasive, so it is extremely unusual for a patient to die from injuries received from a scanner. However, this was the case in early June...

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...

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...

Siemens Healthcare has introduced the world’s first xSPECT system — combines the high sensitivity of single-photon emission computed tomography (SPECT) with the high specificity of computed...

Just a few years ago, integrated positron emission tomography and magnetic resonance (PET/MR) imaging was found only in research institutes, but little by little the technology has expanded into...
