Current Status of Myocardial Perfusion Imaging With New SPECT/CT Cameras.

Myocardial perfusion imaging (MPI) with Single-Photon Emission Computed Tomography (SPECT) has a major role in the management of coronary artery disease. Recent technological advances regarding SPECT detectors with the use of solid-state detectors has allowed for improved imaging quality since a decade with dramatic dose and/or time reduction of imaging protocols due to improved sensitivity and spatial resolution, and is now performed as a routine exam. Interestingly, this new technology has modified our everyday practice, from acquisition protocols (low dose and ultra-fast protocols) to image semiology. Numerous studies have shown how these technical advances have allowed for improved patient management, with similar or improved diagnostic and prognostic information derived from MPI. These improvements have also led to the straightforward implementation of myocardial blood flow measurement. This article reviews the current status of MPI using new SPECT and SPECT/CT cameras.
