Podcasts from BIR's SPECT/CT 2017 event

  • SPECT/CT in infection by Dr John Buscombe
    • Abstract
      The talk summarises the agents which can be used in infection imaging using SPECT/CT and how these can be applied in clinical practice with reference to published evidence and guidelines as appropriate. It also looks at the role of SPECT/CT compared to PET/CT
  • Image registration and reconstruction by Mr John Dickson
    • Abstract
      Many people looking at SPECT images are blinded to the methodology used to produce the tomographic data, while those people who perform reconstruction are offered a bewildering array of choices. It is important to understand the benefits and limitations of the method chosen.
  • Quantitative SPECT/CT available software solutions by Dr Lefteris Liveratos
    • Abstract
      Recent developments in radionuclide imaging, such as advanced image reconstruction and the advent of widespread hybrid imaging, have enabled accurate quantification in SPECT. However, despite numerous methodological advances towards image based quantification, the ‘culture’ to enable its use in clinical applications has only recently started to change.
  • Common artefacts in CT and SPECT/CT Mr Bruce Walmsley
    • Abstract
      Image artefacts arise from a number of different sources. They can be an artefact arising in the CT imaging phase or they may be generated during the process of combining information from both the CT and the SPECT study.
  • SPECT/CT tips in patient positioning and image acquisition by Mr Enrique Sunga
    • Abstract
      SPECT/CT is a breakthrough in the field of diagnostic imaging. It maybe a complicated procedure in such a way that it does not only depend on the high end machines available but also on how it is performed. The success of the study is a combined effort contributed by the patient, machine and the operator(technologist).
