OBJECTIVE To review new incidental findings detected on low-resolution CT attenuation correction (CTAC) images acquired during single-photon emission CT-CT myocardial perfusion imaging as an extension to our initial study. METHODS CTAC images acquired as part of myocardial perfusion imaging performed using single-photon emission CT at four UK nuclear(More)
UNLABELLED Incidental findings on low-dose CT images obtained during hybrid imaging are an increasing phenomenon as CT technology advances. Understanding the diagnostic value of incidental findings along with the technical limitations is important when reporting image results and recommending follow-up, which may result in an additional radiation dose from(More)
OBJECTIVE To review new incidental findings detected on low-resolution CT attenuation correction (CTAC) images acquired during single-photon emission CT (SPECT-CT) myocardial perfusion imaging (MPI) and to determine whether the CTAC images had diagnostic value and warrant reporting. METHODS A multicentre study was performed in four UK nuclear medicine(More)
Incidental findings are common in medical imaging. There is a particularly high prevalence of incidental findings within the thorax, the most frequent being pulmonary nodules. Although pulmonary nodules have the potential to be malignant, most are benign, resulting in a high number of false-positive findings. Low-resolution CT images produced for(More)
