Scanning Systems, Gamma Camera, Planar Image

Definition : Gamma camera scanning systems that produce a two-dimensional image (i.e., planar image) of a radiopharmaceutical distribution within a patient's body. These systems scan the patient by moving either the patient or the camera (i.e., using a track-mounted movable detector that passes over the patient or a patient table that moves beneath a stationary detector). They are used mostly for whole-body scanning.
