The upgrade of a gamma camera from a 5/8" to a 1" thick crystal, the latter with StarBrite technology, prompted to the investigation of changes in performance parameters for planar scintigraphy and SPECT as well as for PET in coincidence mode. For planar and SPECT parameters, the performance was measured according to NEMA Standard Protocol NU1-2001. No… CONTINUE READING
