Excerpt

Practitioners of nuclear cardiology become familiar with their equipment. This is true for conventional SPECT systems as well as high-sensitivity systems with unique detectors and collimation. This editorial is prompted by an article by Oddstig et al that presents the differences in attenuation patterns between standard SPECT and a multi-pinhole CZT SPECT system.1
