SPECT Imaging

Single-photon emission computerized tomography (SPECT) imaging is a nuclear imaging technology (also referred to as molecular imaging) that produces images showing how organs work. The is eanbled by the use of radiotracers, usually attached to sugars. The cells in the body metabolize the sugar and the nuclear images show areas of high and low sugar uptake. This allows imaging of ischemia or infarct in the heart or other organs, or areas of high sugar uptake caused by cancers, which usually have a much higher metabolism than health cells.

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.
