We describe a single photon emission computed tomograph (SPECT) which can be operated inside state-of-the-art magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) systems. The combined SPECT/MRI system allows one to acquire simultaneously the data from both modalities and co-register the images in space and time. The new SPECT is based on the semiconductor cadmium zinc telluride (CZT) and application specific integrated circuits (ASICs) - two technologies which are MR-compatible and almost insensitive to magnetic… CONTINUE READING
