OBJECTIVE Prone positioning, iterative reconstruction (IR-OSEM) and electrocardiography (ECG) gating have been demonstrated to improve the specificity of myocardial perfusion SPECT (MPS) in the diagnosis of coronary artery disease. METHODS The gated supine and prone MPS images of 45 patients were reconstructed with both IR-OSEM [supine (SIR) and prone… CONTINUE READING
