This book presents numerous examples which allow the reader to gain an understanding of the interpretation of quality control tests and to recognize artefacts. The examples are not limited to the quality control tests, but include clinical images obtained from unsuspected malfunctioning in the scintillation camera and/or computer system, suboptimal use of the system or operator error.

Scintillation camera quality control, Part I: Establishing the quality control program. Smith EM(1). Author information: (1)Department of Radiology, University of Rochester Medical Center, New York , USA. This is the first article in a four-part series on scintillation camera quality control. Abstract. This is the first article in a four-part series on scintillation camera quality control. This series of articles will include both theory and practical knowledge on setting up a quality control program, acceptance testing and quality control for planar, SPECT and special imaging procedures. Scintillation Camera & SPECT Version August Technical QC Protocol Handbook, MRSD Page 11 of 41 TEST PARAMETER 1: PHYSICAL INSPECTION Test Parameter Physical Inspection Objective To inspect a scintillation camera, control console, computer, and data storage, display devices for shipping damage, production and design flaws.   Operational Characteristics and Quality Control (QC) of a Scintillation Camera A number of parameters of an imaging device play a major role in the delineation of a radioactive distribution. Of these, two, spatial resolution and sensitivity, are important.

Title: Scintillation, Anger, Gamma Camera & Quality Control 1 Scintillation, Anger, Gamma Camera Quality Control 2 The performance of a scintillation camera must be assessed everyday it is used to assure the acquisition of diagnostically reliable images. 3 Scintillation, Anger, and Gamma cameras. Cameras come in a variety of configurations. Operationally, a scintillation camera consists of four basic parts (Fig. , A–D): collimator, detector, multiple PM tubes and position (x, y coordinates) determining circuit, and , I describe the workings of a scintillation camera. Its operating characteristics such as spatial resolution, sensitivity, and uniformity and quality control are discussed in Chapter IAEA Quality Control Atlas for Scintillation Camera Systems is a collection of approximately images, mostly of the quality-control, acceptance, or performance-testing variety, but includ-ing a fair representation of example clinical images illustrating both normal -camera behavior and a variety of abnormalities and artifacts symptomatic of underlying problems with the imaging system. Quality Control of Scintillation Cameras (Planar and SPECT) Michael K. O’Connor, Mayo Clinic, Rochester, MN The purpose of quality control (QC) is to detect changes in the performance of a.
