The impact of patient-to-detector distance on LV volumes and TID index on SPECT myocardial perfusion imaging: Emphasis on consistent patient-detector positioning in stress and rest phases
- 30 Downloads
Correct interpretation of SPECT myocardial perfusion imaging (MPI) depends largely on comparability of stress and rest images from technical points of view. Here, we present two cases with inconsistent axial position of patient on the scanning table relative to detector in stress and rest phases. Images were acquired in one case with the orbit mode of auto-body contouring (ABC) and in the other case with fixed-radius non-circular orbit.
