SPECT-CT

The new advances of SPECT-CT (Single-Photon Emission Computerized Tomography) combines the technique used in nuclear medicine and the technology of CT to provide more precise information about how different parts of the body functions and more clearly identify problems. Similar to PET, SPECT uses radioactive tracers and a non-invasive patient scan to create detailed images of areas inside the body where the radioactive material is taken up by the cells. SPECT-CT can provide information about blood flow to tissues and chemical reactions (metabolism) in the body, 

Some of the diseases and disorders SPECT images/CT scans have helped detect:

  • Heart Problems
  • Bone Disorders
  • Brain Disorders

Where can I have it done?

The test can be performed at the following location:

  • Atrium Medical Center
