As technological and scientific advancements are made-new types of tests/scans are being developed, and new imaging equipment is coming to the market.
One example of this equipment is the SPECT/CT camera. The SPECT/CT camera joins nuclear medicine and CT (computed tomography). The SPECT images are super-imposed with the CT images. Combining nuclear medicine metabolic visualizations and CT anatomical visualizations-accurate attenuation mapping is possible-allowing pin-point accuracy and more confident diagnoses of findings.
