PURPOSE The purpose of this study was to compare the system performance characteristics and lesion detection capability of two molecular breast imaging (MBI) systems: a multicrystal sodium iodide (NaI)-based single-head system and a cadmium zinc telluride (CZT)-based dual-head system at low administered doses (150-300 MBq) of Tc-99m sestamibi. METHODS System performance characteristics including count sensitivity, uniformity, energy resolution, and spatial resolution were measured using… CONTINUE READING
