Edited via Drs. João V. Vitola and Dominique Delbeke, hugely revered specialists, this case-based textual content advances the data and talents of skilled nuclear medication physicians, cardiologists, and radiologists whereas additionally getting ready citizens for the state of the art box of nuclear cardiology. the world over well-known members provide an quintessential presentation of key concepts and the newest know-how. Diagnostic instruments, physics rules, instrumentation, radiopharmaceuticals, and protocols valuable to the sphere are lined. A complete evaluation of the functions of myocardial perfusion imaging contains functions in designated populations and in emergency departments. probability evaluation, pitfalls, and artifacts also are addressed. extra chapters learn correlative imaging and element the price of cardiac MRI, multislice computed tomography, rigidity echocardiography, coronary angiography, intravascular ultrasound, and puppy and PET/CT. Case displays and a wealth of illustrations make stronger guidance on prognosis and snapshot interpretation, highlighting occasions that readers are inclined to stumble upon in daily perform.

The center of the window should be at the peak of the 57Co spectrum. An image of the planar source is then acquired with sufﬁcient counts to minimize statistical effects (typically 2 to 4 million counts, depending on the size of the camera detector). This ﬂood image is then evaluated visually for nonuniformities and can be compared with a reference image made when the last tune-up was obtained and the camera was performing optimally. A calculation of integral uniformity can also be performed to Figure 2-3.
Circulation. 2002;105:2708–2711. 2 Physics Principles and Instrumentation in Nuclear Cardiology James A. Patton For many years cardiac nuclear medicine procedures have been performed using a scintillation camera. Originally, multiple planar projections were acquired to provide diagnostic information, but more recently the techniques of single photon emission computed tomography (SPECT) have been used. During this time, the scintillation camera has evolved into a high-quality imaging device, and much of this evolution is due to the integration of digital technology into every aspect of the data acquisition, processing, and display processes.
