What is it about?
We investigated if image- and diagnostic quality in SPECT MPI could be maintained despite a reduced acquisition time adding Depth Dependent Resolution Recovery (DDRR) for image reconstruction. Images were compared with filtered back projection (FBP) and iterative reconstruction using Ordered Subsets Expectation Maximization with (IRAC) and without (IRNC) attenuation correction (AC).
Why is it important?
Our results show that SPECT MPI collected in 9 min, reconstructed with DDRR and AC, produced better image quality than the standard procedure. The observers expressed the highest diagnostic confidence in the DDRR reconstruction.
