Segments in this Video

Technical Aspects (14:00)

FREE PREVIEW

Single-Photon Emission Computed Tomography is an imaging technique that uses gamma radiation to provide true 3D information; it is similar to scintigraphy. Topics include: the development of SPECT, the imaging process, and radiotracers.

Operations (14:20)

Medical experts use SPECT to examine organ function and detect specific types of tumors. Topics include: image quality, myocardial perfusion imaging, functional brain imaging, infection and inflammation, and oncology.

Interpretation (06:27)

Normal brain scans reveal symmetry in both hemispheres; SPECT helps identify abnormalities. Topics include: carotid stenosis, cerebral infarction, subdural hematoma, Alzheimer's disease, frontotemporal dementia, the myocardial perfusion study, and more.

Nuclear Medicine (01:08)

The combination of SPECT and CT system images is a valuable tool for diagnosis and treatment plans. It helps provide accurate attenuation correction of radiopharmaceutical distribution.

Description

This video describes the defining moments in the history of SPECT and describes the gamma camera imaging process. It discusses the advantages of integrated SPECT/CT scanning, along with the more commonly used radiotracers. It discusses general protocols and provides overviews of the current applications of SPECT in myocardial perfusion imaging, functional brain imaging, diagnosis of infection and inflammation, and oncology. The video concludes with a segment on interpretation that offers examples of SPECT/CT imaging in various cerebrovascular diseases and dementias, as well as the myocardial perfusion study.
