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

PET vs SPECT, flurpiridaz

Myocardial perfusion imaging (MPI) with positron emission tomography (PET) has been shown to be superior to single photon emission computed tomography (SPECT). Nevertheless, widespread clinical...

CardioPET

The next generation of positron emission tomography (PET) imaging agents will herald an age when PET will eclipse single photon emission computed tomography (SPECT) as the “go to” modality for...

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....

April 27, 2012 - More than 150 molecular imaging professionals gathered last week at the Society of Nuclear Medicine’s third Multimodality Cardiovascular Molecular Imaging Symposium held at the...

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...

Wide beam reconstruction (WBR) reduces both dose and image acquisition time by 50 percent for myocardial perfusion SPECT (MPI), according to a new study published in the March-April 2011 issue of...

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...
