We aim at improving the quantitative assessment of the severity of myocardial perfusion defects in cardiac SPECT imaging. The idea of a numerical heart template is utilized, which enables a patient specific measurement of defect severity as opposed to the more traditional population-based approaches. Using NCAT we developed three male thorax phantoms with… CONTINUE READING
