Nuclear Medicine Imaging in medicine
Advances in care
The introduction will cover what nuclear medicine imaging is and then discuss how it differs from other imaging, such as x-ray, ultrasound and CT. Building on these principles some images will be shown to demonstrate the progression of technology to improve the details of images and disease characterisation. Further discussion on the development of combined imaging systems and the use of CT technology with the gamma cameras to further improve imaging techniques with the presentation of the images obtained from what are called SPECT/CT systems
Closing will be an overview of how technology is continuing to develop with solid state detectors (CZT specifically) and how AI is also being used to improve on image quality and also reducing the radiation dose given to patients to enable the imaging to be undertaken, as well as reducing the times for the scans to be undertaken.
