Computer-assisted diagnosis (CAID) is commonly used to evaluate cardiac nuclear medicine studies such as thallium perfusion scans. Part 1 of this series (Journal of Digital Imaging, 5:209–222, 1992) reviewed the basic theory underlying CAID in nuclear medicine and its use in planar thallium imaging. Part 2 discussed the application of CAID to SPECT(More)
UNLABELLED The purpose of this study was to determine the efficacy of 111In-polyclonal immunoglobulin (IgG) for the diagnosis of infection or inflammation. METHODS Fifty-three patients with suspected infection were prospectively studied. Each underwent an 111In-polyclonal IgG study; biopsy, surgery, additional nuclear medicine scans and radiographic(More)
UNLABELLED An expert system was developed that interprets ventilation-perfusion lung scans. The use of such scans for suspected pulmonary embolism is ideal for computer-assisted diagnosis by expert systems. The data are digital, only a single disease entity is diagnosed or excluded, and well-established diagnostic criteria already exist for visual(More)

The use of computer-assisted diagnosis has become widespread in cardiac nuclear medicine. Quantitative programs are commercially available for ventriculography, phase analysis, and thallium 201 perfusion studies. The goal of these programs is to eliminate interobserver variability by objectively analyzing the studies without causing a loss of accuracy. In(More)
A patient with known aortoiliac occlusive disease and hypertension suffered a cerebrovascular accident 6.5 min after the administration of intravenous dipyridamole during a 201Tl myocardial study. Despite aminophylline administration, the patient developed a completed stroke. The mechanism most likely responsible for precipitating this patient's stroke is(More)
