Workstations, Gamma Camera/Single Photon Emission Tomography

Definition : Workstations designed to process digital data and images acquired by gamma camera scanning systems that may include single photon emission tomography (SPET) systems. These workstations typically obtain the anatomic images or related physiologic information directly from the gamma cameras. Gamma camera/SPET workstations typically consist of a high-speed digital computer, high-definition printers, optical/magnetic disks, input and output devices, and processors (e.g., array processors). These workstations usually follow the instructions of specialized software to measure the spatial distribution and intensity of radiation emitted from radiopharmaceuticals; software specific for SPET scanning systems permits computer reconstruction of transverse image slices taken through the patient's body. The workstations are frequently installed as a component of or interact with hospital information systems, including radiology picture archiving and communication systems.
