SPECT

12/15/2013

 Single Photon Emission Computed Tomography (SPECT) cameras acquire multiple planar views of the radioactivity in an organ. The data are then processed mathematically to create cross-sectional views of the organ. SPECT utilizes the single photons emitted by gamma-emitting radionuclides such as TC-99m, Ga-67, In-111, and I-123. SPECT can be used to complement any gamma imaging study, where a true 3D representation can be helpful, e.g., tumor imaging, infection (leukocyte) imaging, thyroid imaging or bone scintigraphy.

We have a Dual Head variable-angle Philips/ACAD Gamma Camera in our Nuclear Medicine Clinic.
