Although a SPECT scan is simple from the patient's from perspective,
it takes considerable skill and experience to dependably generate
accurate brain SPECT images suitable for psychiatric
applications. Equally important is the need for total consistency
in imaging techniques for all patients so that results are
quantifiable, repeatable, and reliable.

SPECT Scan Issues to Consider

Variability of
the Technique

Processing protocols must be standardized and optimized. Motion can ruin a scan, so it is important that there is NO MOTION by the patient during the procedure. Expertise is needed to identify and deal with image artifacts and other sophisticated technical issues.
