The Work Station of the SPECT-CT Hybrid System allows the reconstruction of images:
SPECT (Single Photon Emission Computed Tomography): image technique in nuclear medicine with the acquisition of tomographic slices (transaxial, coronal, sagittal) used for the functional analysis of organs and systems through the application of radionuclides, which in and of themselves have the ability to identify diseases in early stages, detecting molecular alterations before anatomical changes in the tissues or organs studied.
16 slice CT: diagnostic technique by anatomical images in tomographic slices (transaxial, coronal, sagittal and 3D reconstructions).
Hybrid, functional and anatomical studies are carried out with the CT, in addition to correcting the attenuation factor. The latter is of prime importance in myocardium perfusion and fusion images, since it avoids false positives for ischemic pathologies.
