Increased sensitivity through use of overlapping 180° orbits in clinical myocardial perfusion imaging

Clinical cardiac imaging is hindered by noise due to limited activity and imaging time. Use of 90° dual-detector systems with 90° gantry rotation may provide the best sensitivity/resolution for cardiac imaging, but this option is not readily available to those using a triple-detector system with detectors at 120° intervals. This study utilizes a cardiac… CONTINUE READING
