Combined single photon emission computed tomography/computed tomography (SPECT/CT) scanner

Summary Information: Combined single photon emission computed tomography/computed tomography (SPECT/CT) scanner

Combined single photon emission computed tomography/computed tomography (SPECT/CT) scanner: A combined single photon emission computed tomography /computed tomography (SPECT/CT) scanner is a large machine that uses nuclear medicine and high-resolution X-ray imaging to anatomically define any abnormal metabolic activity (e.g. blood flow) in the body. SPECT detects a radioactive metabolite administered to the patient and CT generates a high-resolution image of the area to identify the exact structure(s) with altered metabolism.
