1. Introduction

The current document is an update of an earlier version of single photon emission tomography (SPECT) guidelines that was developed by the American Society of Nuclear Cardiology. Although that document was only published a few years ago, there have been significant advances in camera technology, imaging protocols, and reconstruction algorithms that prompted the need for a revised document. This publication is designed to provide imaging guidelines for physicians and technologists who are qualified to practice nuclear cardiology. While the information supplied in this document has been carefully reviewed by experts in the field, the document should not be considered medical advice or a professional service. We are cognizant that SPECT technology is evolving rapidly and that these recommendations may need further revision in the near future. Hence, the imaging guidelines described in this publication should not be used in clinical studies until they have been reviewed and a ...

Unless reaffirmed, retired, or amended by express action of the Board of Directors of the American Society of Nuclear Cardiology, this Imaging Guideline shall expire as of May 2015.
