Software, Gamma Camera Scanning
Definition : Software designed to operate gamma camera scanning systems and control/monitor a limited number of their functions. This software is usually intended to work only with one or a few models of gamma camera scanning systems, usually supplied by the same manufacturer. The software performs a variety of algorithms to facilitate the analysis of measurements performed during the scanning procedure and facilitate the sending/receiving of patient data from and to information systems. Gamma camera scanning system software is usually not available separate from the gamma camera system but may be updated (i.e., through the release of modified versions) during the life of the system. Dedicated software intended for two-dimension (planar) imaging and for the assessment of cross-sectional slices that are reconstructed as tomographic images (single-photon emission tomography [SPET]) is also available. The software is used for a variety of clinical evaluations, including nuclear cardiology studies, and imaging of cerebral blood flow.
