Software, Nuclear Medicine Study
Definition : Software designed to acquire, process, and archive data and images obtained during nuclear medicine studies. This software usually works with nuclear medicine and/or gamma camera workstations and interacts with devices used in the procedures, such as gamma cameras, single photon emission computed tomography, and thyroid uptake systems. Nuclear medicine study software is intended to work only with one or a few models of nuclear medicine equipment and related devices, usually supplied by the same manufacturer. This also facilitates the processing and/or sending of data to and from hospital information systems. The software may or may not be available separate from the nuclear medicine equipment and may be updated and/or upgraded (i.e., through the release of modified versions) during the life of the equipment. Dedicated software is available for a variety of nuclear medicine studies, including programs for thyroid function and coronary artery, liver, pulmonary, and renal scanned imaging.
