Nuclear medicine: SPECT (single-photon emission computed tomography)

Benjamin Tsui

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


During the last three decades, there has beenmuch excitement in the development of diagnostic radiology. The development is fueled by inventions and advances made in a number of exciting new medical imaging modalities, including ultrasound (US), x-ray CT (computed tomography), PET (positron emission tomography), SPECT (single-photon emission computed tomography), and MRI (magnetic resonance imaging). These new imaging modalities have revolutionized the practice of diagnostic radiology, resulting in substantial improvement in patient care.
