SPECT-CT combines two imaging technologies – SPECT which shows biological functions in the body, and Computed Tomography (CT), which shows detailed anatomical structures. If a scanner does not have the CT component, it is more commonly known as a Gamma Camera rather than a SPECT scanner.
A SPECT-CT scan allows your doctor to see how your organs function and to detect certain diseases. It is useful for a range of medical conditions, such as bone metastases, renal function, cardiac blood flow, gastrointestinal function, immune activity, thyroid function, tumours and more.
New xSPECT technologies allow precise localisation of disease for more confident lesion assessment and automated lesion quantification.
