Quality Assurance for SPECT Systems

The objective of this publication is to provide professionals in nuclear medicine centres with detailed quality control test procedures for the scintillation camera and computer system. After studying this book, most qualified readers will be able to perform the three types of quality control tests, i.e. acceptance, reference and routine tests for the scintillation camera (also called the gamma camera) system for each of its imaging modes.
This publication focuses on the scintillation camera system, both in single and multiple head configurations, for obtaining images and quantitative data in planar imaging mode, whole body imaging mode and single photon emission computed tomography (SPECT). In addition, a section is devoted to the nuclear medicine computer of the camera system and quality assurance of nuclear medicine software. The final section addresses quality control of the digital image display.
