Abstract

In myocardial perfusion imaging, the type of orbit that provides the best image quality is still the subject of debate. This study correlates the effects of angular rotation (180° vs. 360°), type of orbit (circular vs. body contouring) and location of the heart within the orbit, with changes in spatial resolution and consequential changes in the uniformity of short axis slices of a normal myocardial phantom.
