OBJECTIVE. The purpose of this pictorial essay is to illustrate several clinical situations in which SPECT/CT can be effectively applied in nuclear radiology practice. CONCLUSION. SPECT/CT has recently emerged as a valuable adjunct to standard techniques in clinical nuclear radiology. This technique provides significantly improved scintigraphic localization and characterization of disease, increasingly important in this era of minimally invasive surgery and targeted radiotherapy.
