Tomography, Emission-Computed, Single-Photon

Known as: Single-photon emission computed tomography, CAT Scan, Single-Photon Emission, Single-Photon Emission Computerized Tomography 
A method of computed tomography that uses radionuclides which emit a single photon of a given energy. The camera is rotated 180 or 360 degrees around… (More)
