The field of nuclear cardiac imaging has evolved from being rather subjective, more "art than a science," to a more objective, digital-based quantitative technique, providing insight into the physiological processes of cardiovascular disorders and predicting patient outcome. In a mere 4 decades of its clinical use, the technology used to image myocardial perfusion has made quantum leaps from planar to single-photon emission computed tomography (SPECT) and now to a more contemporary rapid SPECT… CONTINUE READING
