Abstrakt

Hybrid imaging with SPECT/CT and PET/CT has had a profound impact on diagnostic imaging and in infection imaging too, combining functional information with anatomic details provided by nuclear medicine and radiological devices, respectively. In the early times, Nuclear Medicine and Radiological imaging could be co-registered or acquired separately and fused a posteriori, but artifacts in images alignment and mismatches could occur in operator-dependent manner. Currently, SPECT and PET cameras have been implemented developing new strategies and software to analyze images. In this chapter, hybrid SPECT/CT and PET/CT imaging will be described with particular focus on the technical characteristics, the interpretative quantitation, and their relevance in infection imaging.
