  2. 2. Nuclear medicine methods in idiopathic Parkinsonism pre- and postsynaptic dopamine SPECT

    University dissertation from Umeå : Umeå Universitet

    Author : Susanna Jakobson Mo; Umeå universitet.; [2013]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Nuclear medicine; SPECT; 123I-FP-Cit; 123I-IBZM; dopamine; parkinsonism; Parkinson’s disease; multiple system atrophy; progressive supranuclear palsy; Radiology; radiologi;

    Abstract : Background: Single photon emission computed tomography (SPECT) with dopamine transporter (DAT) and dopamine D2 receptor (D2R) ligands can visualise the integrity of the nigrostriatal dopamine system. Parkinson’s disease (PD) and the atypical parkinsonian diseases (APD), progressive supranuclear palsy (PSP) and multiple system atrophy (MSA), have similar symptoms and dopamine depletion, but differ in pharmacological response and prognosis.

  4. 4. Evaluation of attenuation and scatter corrections in lung and brain SPECT

    University dissertation from Göteborg : Göteborgs universitet

    Author : Agnetha Gustafsson; [2001]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; SPECT; attenuation; scatter; detectability; Monte Carlo simulation; MEDICINE; MEDICIN;

    Abstract : Single Photon Emission Computed Tomography (SPECT) is used to image functional processes in the human body. The image process is affected by physical effects such as attenuation, scatter, spatial resolution and statistical noise. READ MORE

  5. 5. Myocardial Perfusion and Function: Comparative assessment by ECG, SPECT and MRI

    University dissertation from Department of Clinical Physiology, Lund University

    Abstract : Evaluation of myocardial perfusion and function is important in management of patients with suspected or known coronary artery disease. This thesis focuses on the use of common diagnostic methods, myocardial perfusion single-photon emission computed tomography (MPS) and electrocardiography (ECG), to enhance and validate the diagnostic information.
