Nuclear myocardial perfusion imaging (MPI) with positron emission tomography (PET) and single-photon emission computed tomography (SPECT) have been the gold standard for noninvasive detection of...

Taking their pick, biomedical researchers can now conduct five different imaging studies in one scan with a state-of-the-art preclinical molecular imaging system that scientists unveiled during...

Researchers at the Society of Nuclear Medicine and Molecular Imaging’s 2014 Annual Meeting (SNMMI) revealed how a protein encourages the production of stem cells that regenerate damaged tissues of...

June 5, 2014 — Fairview Health Services, Minneapolis, recently became the first U.S. healthcare facility to install the Symbia Intevo xSPECT system from Siemens Healthcare. The first ever xSPECT...

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...

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...
