SPECT-CT

SPECT-CT combines single-photon emission computerized tomography (SPECT) detectors and computed tomography (CT) into one imaging system.

UltraSPECT, dose management, lower dose SPECT

UltraSPECT's image reconstruction software can be used on older SPECT systems to allow lower-dose imaging. This is an example of the software's imaging capability using between 30-50 percent less dose.

This is a BFPET PET nuclear cardiac imaging scan for myocardial perfusion, nuclear cardiology

BFPET demonstrates higher resolution in the evaluation of myocardial perfusion in this series of images contrasting the results of a PET scan done with FluoroPharma's fluorine-18 based agent and a SPECT study done with sestamibi. Images were captured during an investigator-initiated study of BFPET conducted at 301 Hospital in Beijing, China.
