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.

Development of these ideas will then show how nuclear medicine has advanced through to current technology with the use of combining imaging technologies into a single system and improvements in disease detection. Some brief final words to discuss potential future developments and show where technology may further develop, including the use of AI.
