SPECT: To detect or image the distribution of radionuclides in the body or organ, using the following techniques: planar imaging, whole body imaging, tomographic imaging for isotopes with energies up to 588keV. CT: The CT component is intended to produce cross sectional images of the body by computer reconstruction of x-ray transmission data from either the same axial place taken at different angles or spiral planes taken at different angles.SPECT+CT: Perform CT scans and nuclear imaging studies within the same instrument. To obtain attenuation corrected images and to provide registration of anatomical and physiological images within the patient's anatomy. These systems are intended to be utilized by appropriately trained health care professionals to aid in detecting, localizing, diagnosing, staging and restaging of lesions, tumors, disease and organ function for the evaluation of diseases and disorders such as, but not limited to, cardiovascular disease, neurological disorders and cancer.
