    SUMMARY: The basic principles of scintigraphy are reviewed and extended to 3D imaging. Single-photon emission computed tomography (SPECT) is a sensitive and specific 3D technique to monitor in vivo functional processes in both clinical and preclinical studies. SPECT/CT systems are becoming increasingly common and can provide accurately registered anatomic information as well. In general, . The two most advanced forms using radionuclides are single-photon emission computed tomography (SPECT) and position emission tomography (PET). SPECT uses a rotating gamma camera to obtain images from multiple angles of the distribution of a conventional .

    Single-photon emission computed tomography (SPECT, or less commonly, SPET) is a nuclear medicine tomographic imaging technique using gamma rays. It is very similar to conventional nuclear medicine planar imaging using a gamma camera (that is, scintigraphy). but is . Authors Newberg and Waldman have pursued this question in How Enlightenment Changes Your Brain, exhaustively measuring a broad range of spiritual experiences in an equally broad range of subjects via functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) and single photon emission computed tomography .

      The Single-Photon Emission Computed Tomography (SPECT) Market report is a compilation of first-hand information, qualitative and quantitative assessment by . single photon emission computed tomography n a medical imaging technique that is used esp. for mapping brain function and that is similar to positron-emission tomography in using the photons emitted by the agency of a radioactive tracer to create an image but that differs in being able to detect only a single photon for each nuclear disintegration and in generating a lower-quality image abbr.

Emission computed tomography (ECT) is a type of tomography involving radioactive emissions. Types include positron emission tomography (PET) and Single-photon emission computed tomography (SPECT).

The imaging agent used in SPECT emits gamma rays, as opposed to the positron emitters (such as 18 F) used in PET. There are a range of radiotracers (such as 99m Tc, ICDCM:   Spect Single-Photon Emission Computed Tomography: A Primer by Robert J.

The digit and digit formats both by: Single-photon emission computed tomography (SPECT) is an ancillary noninvasive test commonly used to identify the epileptogenic zone.

However, its proper utilization may be limited depending on the resources available at each center. This study aimed to investigate the utility of SPECT in presurgical evaluation of children at our center.

Clinical single-photon emission computed tomography (SPECT) is the use of gamma ray-emitting radiopharmaceuticals to produce functional imaging of an organ or tissue of the human body. In SPECT, the selected injectable radioisotope emits a single photon of gamma radiation as it decays.

Single photon emission computed tomography (SPECT) is a test that detects blood flow changes in the brain. During a seizure, blood flow is highest at the point in the brain where the seizure starts. The SPECT scan shows this “hotspot” in the brain. Objectives. This study sought to establish worldwide and regional diagnostic reference levels (DRLs) and achievable administered activities (AAAs) for single-photon emission computed tomography (SPECT) myocardial perfusion imaging (MPI).

The aim of this study was to establish the value of thallium single-photon emission computed tomography ( Tl-SPECT) as a predictor of overall survival and response to chemotherapy in recurrent glioma, and to compare the value of Tl-SPECT with that of CT and MRI.

Positron emission tomography–computed tomography (better known as PET-CT or PET/CT) is a nuclear medicine technique which combines, in a single gantry, a positron emission tomography (PET) scanner and an x-ray computed tomography (CT) scanner, to acquire sequential images from both devices in the same session, which are combined into a single superposed (co-registered) image.

Introduction. Thallium chloride ( Tl) is widely used as a single-photon emission computed tomography (SPECT) myocardial perfusion imaging (MPI) agent Tl SPECT allows for noninvasive evaluation of coronary artery disease (CAD).

1,2. In Tl SPECT MPI, regional hypoperfusion can be evaluated using short-axis, vertical long-axis, and horizontal long-axis images. Single photon emission computed tomography (SPECT) is a medical imaging technique that is based on conventional nuclear medicine imaging and tomographic reconstruction methods.

The images reflect functional information about patients similar to that obtained with positron emission tomography (PET). Single photon emission computed tomography (SPECT) is a widely available and flexible imaging technique that is capable of visualizing and quantifying changes in cerebral blood flow and neurotransmitter systems.

SPECT, in addition to newer SPECT-CT, scanners are an important tool in the differential diagnosis of both neurological and. Evidence-based analyses have been prepared for each of these five imaging modalities: cardiac magnetic resonance imaging, single photon emission computed tomography, slice computed tomographic angiography, stress echocardiography, and stress echocardiography with contrast.

The second type of scan, single photon emission computed tomography (SPECT), produces a series of contiguous two-dimensional images of the distribution of the radiotracer using the same agents as planar scintigraphy. There is, therefore, a direct analogy between planar X-ray/CT and planar scintigraphy/SPECT.

Objectives: To assess the clinical significance and single-photon emission computed tomography/computed tomography (SPECT/CT) features of atraumatic costal cartilage fracture (CCF) in patients with malignant tumors.

Methods: This was a retrospective review of 38 tumor patients with atraumatic CCF referred to SPECT/CT, who were served as the study group (SG).

Myocardial perfusion imaging (MPI) using combined computed tomography (CT) and single-photon emission CT (SPECT) systems plays an important role in the management of patients with coronary artery disease (CAD). 1–4 The method can be used to assess myocardial perfusion and left ventricular function simultaneously.

It is an especially valuable tool for assessing short-term risk of CAD, thus.A cervicogenic headache (CEH) is difficult to diagnose due to its varied pathology.

We evaluated the usefulness of single-photon emission computed tomography/computed tomography (SPECT/CT) in diagnosing CEH and its interventional treatment. Retrospectively, 23 patients diagnosed with CEH between March to August were allocated to SPECT/CT (n = 11) and control (n = 12) groups.The objective of this investigation is to determine the impact of respiratory motion on the detection of small solitary pulmonary nodules (SPN) in single photon emission computed tomographic (SPECT) imaging.

We have previously modeled the respiratory motion of SPN based on the change of location of anatomic structures within the lungs identified on breath-held CT images of volunteers acquired.
