SPECT

SPECT, occasionally referred to as SPET, stands for ?Single photon emission computed tomography?. It is a method of 3D data collection for living organic bodies. Essentially, it slices the body into tens of thousands of slides using gamma rays. These can then be stacked together to create a 3D rendition.

The gamma irradiator is run down the body from multiple angles such that each slice of the body is captured from multiple vantage points, typically only a few degrees apart.

SPECT is frequently used as a brain structure imager, and as a general body diagnostic imager.
