New study explores the significant impact of attenuation correction on downstream costs

Attenuation artifacts present a challenge when interpreting SPECT myocardial perfusion imaging (MPI) studies. Advanced technology has been able to significantly improve diagnostic accuracy through attenuation correction. A team of doctors at Hartford Hospital and the University of Connecticut explored the impact of attenuation correction on clinical decision-making and its effect

Is Attenuation Shift an acceptable substitute for Attenuation Correction?

Identifying attenuation in SPECT images is a critical component of reading images with the highest clinical confidence possible. Today, some advanced nuclear cameras offer attenuation correction, which removes body artifacts and ultimately provides more uniform images. Without this feature, however, there is another alternative technique commonly used to identify attenuation.
