Technical Performance of a New Cardiac Technology "IQ-SPECT" Applied to SCINTI-CT Myocardial Imaging With 99mTc-Sestamibi in Coronary Patients

2015-08-17 19:53:24 | BioPortfolio


Cardiological examination is one of the major directions in nuclear medicine for detection of myocardial ischemia in patients with suspected coronary artery disease. In Caen, they constitute 20% of the activity of nuclear medicine. It is evaluating a new versatile innovative technology (IQ-SPECT) for performing rapid nuclear cardiological examinations (4 minutes) and quality on a SCINTI-CT camera for correcting the mitigation. This technical solution IQ-SPECT was made available to the nuclear medicine department in August 2011. To date, apart from the work on heart ghosts and one publication in abstract form in 2009, no other study have been published.

The goal of the study is to study the technical performance of the innovative technology IQ-SPECT during a SCINTI-CT imaging in patients suspected of coronary disease .

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

The use of molecularly targeted imaging probes to localize and/or monitor biochemical and cellular processes via various imaging modalities that include RADIONUCLIDE IMAGING; ULTRASONOGRAPHY; MAGNETIC RESONANCE IMAGING; fluorescence imaging; and MICROSCOPY.

The use of combination of imaging techniques or platforms (e.g., MRI SCAN and PET SCAN) encompassing aspects of anatomical, functional, or molecular imaging methods.

Radionuclide ventriculography where scintigraphic data is acquired during repeated cardiac cycles at specific times in the cycle, using an electrocardiographic synchronizer or gating device. Analysis of right ventricular function is difficult with this technique; that is best evaluated by first-pass ventriculography (VENTRICULOGRAPHY, FIRST-PASS).

A gamma-emitting radionuclide imaging agent used in the evaluation of regional cerebral blood flow and in non-invasive dynamic biodistribution studies and myocardial imaging. It has also been used to label leukocytes in the investigation of inflammatory bowel diseases.

A technetium imaging agent used in renal scintigraphy, computed tomography, lung ventilation imaging, gastrointestinal scintigraphy, and many other procedures which employ radionuclide imaging agents.
