UNLABELLED We have developed a software-based method for processing dual-energy 201TI SPECT emission projection data with the goal of calculating a spatially dependent index of the local impact of gamma-ray attenuation. We refer to this method as intrinsic dual-energy processing (IDEP). METHODS IDEP exploits the differential attenuation of lower energy emissions (69-83 keV) and higher energy emissions (167 keV) resulting from the decay of 201TI to characterize the relative degree of low… CONTINUE READING
