Cardiac Hybrid or Fusion Imaging and Future Prospective

Shinro Matsuo

Abstract

Cardiac single photon emission computed tomography (SPECT) / computed tomography (CT) has been introduced to provide anatomical information on such as coronary calcification combined with functional information of myocardial perfusion imaging. Fusion imaging provides accurate co-registration of coronary stenosis and perfusion abnormalities, and allows identification of reduced coronary flow reserve. This chapter shows an overview of relevant literature including clinical value in SPECT/CT.
