Combining the functional information of SPECT myocardial perfusion imaging (SPECT-MPI) and the morphological information of coronary CT angiography (CTA) may allow easier evaluation of the spatial relationship between coronary stenoses and perfusion defects. The aim of the present study was the validation of a novel software solution for three-dimensional (3D) image fusion of SPECT-MPI and CTA. SPECT-MPI with adenosine stress/rest 99mTc-tetrofosmin was fused with 64-slice CTA in 15 consecutive… CONTINUE READING
