Software, Workstation Management, Gamma Camera/Single Photon Emission Tomography

Definition : Software designed to operate gamma camera and single photon emission tomography (SPECT) workstations, control/monitor a limited number of their functions, and/or process data and images obtained during the scanning procedure. This software usually interacts with devices used in the procedure, such as a gamma camera, recorders, and array processors; it may perform a variety of algorithms to facilitate the operation of the workstation and the analysis of the spatial distribution and intensity of radiation emitted from radiopharmaceuticals. Gamma camera workstation management software is intended to work only with one or a few models of workstations and related devices, usually supplied by the same manufacturer. This facilitates the processing and/or sending data from the workstation to and from picture archiving and communication systems (PACS) and/or other hospital information systems. The software is not usually available separate from the workstation but may be updated (i.e., through the release of modified versions) during the life of the equipment. Also available is dedicated software intended for SPECT scanning systems. This permits computer reconstruction of transverse image slices taken through the patient's body.
