Abstract

This work investigates phantom and subject positioning as well as collecting data with a variety of angular sampling and acquisition trajectories. The overall goal of this work has been to utilize the dedicated, breast SPECT-CT system to acquire the best possible images. A large portion of this work has been to apply corrections to the system for quantitative imaging. The system has been shown to provide high quality images with minimal out-of-field signal contribution. Additionally, the quantification procedure has been shown to be within 10% of the known activity concentration present at the time of imaging for both VAOR and PROJSINE trajectories.
