Gamma cameras & SPECT imaging
SPECT imaging provides a cheaper alternative to PET. Its use for diagnosis is significant; the major applications of gamma camera (SPECT and planar) imaging include the diagnosis and evaluation of ischemic heart disease; evaluation and diagnosis of fractures, sports injuries, arthritis and cancer metastases to bone; evaluation of renal function in kidney disease and of transplanted kidneys; diagnosis of thyroid disease and thyroid cancer and diagnosis of pulmonary embolism.
Benefits of SITORO® to gamma camera and SPECT imaging applications
In the same way as it is applicable to PET imaging, SITORO improves detector efficiency and therefore image quality in gamma camera and SPECT imaging applications.
