Software, Gamma Camera Scanning, Single Photon Emission Computed Tomography
Definition : Gamma camera scanning software designed to operate single photon emission computed tomography scanning (SPECT) systems and control/monitor a limited number of their functions. This software is intended to work only with one or a few models of SPECT 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. SPECT scanning system software is usually not available separate from the gamma camera scanning system but may be updated (i.e., through the release of modified versions) during the life of the system. SPECT system software is intended for the reconstruction of tomographic images of the cross-sectional slices obtained during the scanning procedure. Dedicated SPECT software is available for particular applications, such as whole-body bone imaging, brain perfusion studies, and cardiac imaging.
