Primary Outcome Measures:
- A comparison of high efficiency camera images (D-SPECT) to a conventional camera (A-SPECT) with respect to the ability to detect pathological lesions. [ Time Frame: 12 month ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
Secondary Outcome Measures:
- A comparison of high efficiency camera images (D-SPECT) to a conventional camera (A-SPECT) with respect to image quality/resolution [ Time Frame: 12 month ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
|Study Start Date:||November 2009|
|Estimated Study Completion Date:||December 2010|
|Estimated Primary Completion Date:||December 2010 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)|
The D-SPECT system uses a solid-state detector, made of an alloy of Cadmium, Zinc, and Telluride, eliminating the need for thick crystals and large PMTs. As a result, the system is significantly miniaturized, and ergonomically optimized to both user and patient.
