List QC tests for gamma cameras required by accrediting organizations. 5.

    Describes definitions, quantitative measurements of performance characteristics, and reporting techniques for the specification of the following Gamma camera parameters. General Product Information - (Show below) - (Hide below). – scintillation crystals in a gamma camera are typically 10 to 25 inches in diameter (or rectangular) and are 1/4 to 1 inch thick – Like the screens that are used in projection radiography, thicker crystals stop more photons than thinner crystals, but they also have poorer resolution.

Gamma Camera Acceptance Testing: The First Quality Control Julie Blust Department of Nuclear Medicine, St. Luke's Episcopal Hospital, Houston, Texas Objective: When a gamma camera is delivered, it should be evaluated to verify that it meets the performance level prom­ ised by the specifications.

The quality and detail of an image obtained by gamma cameras are affected by several parameters associated with these imaging systems. These parameters include spatial resolution, sensitivity.

This report,"Scintillation Camera Acceptance Testing and Performance Evaluation," is the sixth in a series of AAPM carthage-publicite.com is designed to provide users of the scintillation cameras with test procedures for performance evaluation. This report was prepared by the Nuclear Medicine Committee of the.

Aug 11,  · Several measurements of performance parameters are required to test the operation of nuclear medicine equipment in the clinical setting.

The importance of the parameters and frequencies of the tests are essentially dependent on the purpose of the imaging and how often the equipment is carthage-publicite.com: Angela Vaiano.

May 25,  · Performance characteristics of a new pixelated portable gamma camera. The Gaussian fitting parameters were used to determine the photopeak center energy and the FWHM.

For each photopeak, the energy resolution was calculated as the quotient of its FWHM and its center energy. “ Performance measurements of gamma cameras,” NEMA Cited by: We use cookies to offer you a better experience, personalize content, tailor advertising, provide social media features, and better understand the use of our services.

chapter 14 The Gamma Camera. Performance Characteristics. The performance of a gamma camera system is defined by the sharpness and detail of the images it produces, the efficiency with which it detects incident radiation, its ability to measure the energy of the incident γ rays (to minimize scatter), and the counting rate it can handle without significant dead time losses.

Oct 25,  · Doody's Book Review - Score: 95, 4 Stars. Nuclear Medicine Instrumentation is the first text to covers instruments vital to nuclear medicine at a technologist’s level. It provides students with concise and straightforward information pertaining to the operation and use of each instrument.

It is specifically designed to prepare students for typical scenarios and potential pitfalls they may 5/5(1). In order to evaluate the effects of the pinhole collimator parameters on system performance, computer simulations were performed using GATE.
