This study aims to investigate the impact of respiratory motion correction on the diagnostic accuracy in myocardial perfusion SPECT. SPECT/CT data were acquired using an anthropomorphic phantom. The lungs were given an exponential sine-wave respiratory pattern resulting in heart motion of 1.5cm and 2.7cm in the cranio-caudal direction at the level of the… CONTINUE READING
