This study was aimed at comparing the sensitivity and hot and cold contrasts obtained when imaging the PICKER thyroid phantom using gamma cameras fitted with either their ultra-high or high-resolution low-energy parallel hole collimator. Seventeen camera models from Elscint, General Electric, Siemens and Sopha Medical Vision were involved in the study for a total of 30 cameras and 52 camera heads. A single operator conducted the study in order to minimize the impact of human factors. The… CONTINUE READING
