Study suggests role for technologists in stress-first SPECT MPI interpretation

SNMMI SmartBrief | Sep 24, 2014

A study presented at an imaging conference found nuclear medicine technologists could read and interpret stress-first SPECT myocardial perfusion imaging scans using a standard 17-segment scoring model. Even without formal training in the approach, technologists correctly identified the need for rest imaging in 53 of 60 patients while cardiologists identified 58. Having technologists screen under a stress-first SPECT MPI protocol could improve workflow, reduce radiation dose and save money, researchers said. AuntMinnie.com (free registration) (09/22)
