SPECT-CT in nuclear medicine

Nuclear Medicine Update: Dr Iain talks about the value of SPECT-CT in bone scanning “Nuclear Medicine functional imaging is now directly combined with CT anatomical scanning to create SPECT-CT. It is the first technology to combine the power of SPECT with the precision of diagnostic multi-slice-CT. It makes it possible to pinpoint the exact location, […]
