UNLABELLED High-resolution pinhole-SPECT (PSPECT) is a new method for examining the thyroid gland. METHODS The camera is tilted slightly so that it is as close to the thyroid as possible. Patients are injected with 185-260 MBq (5-7 mCi) of [99mTc]pertechnetate and examined for 20 min. The reconstruction algorithm is based on filtered back-projection. RESULTS We performed static scintigraphy on the thyroids of 114 patients, followed by PSPECT. The major advantage of P SPECT is high… CONTINUE READING
