SPECT MUGA adds further benefits by improving contrast resolution, decreasing camera time, improving accuracy of interpretation and the overall reliability of the study as compared to planar acquisition.
Factors like scattered radiation, image noise and divergence of the x-ray beam, leads to decrease in the contrast resolution of CBCT.
This advantage is due to the fact that the contrast resolution in CT scans can be manipulated by a technician during an examination.
While more expensive than the traditional image intensifier, this digital detector provides better, less distorted images with far superior contrast resolutions, an important feature for low-contrast applications such as adhesives inspection and where the board is populated on both sides.
For example, some advantages of MRI over sonography include a larger field of view, higher spatial resolution, better contrast resolution, and better capability to assess fibroids for vascularity and classify them by their exact location, said Paul Nikolaidis, M.
Reportedly provides high contrast resolution at higher viewing angles than provided by any other x-ray system currently available.
In addition, DM provides better contrast resolution, distinguishing better than film mammography between different shades of gray.
In the majority of applications, CR does not perform as well as film in the spatial resolution category, but it is a clear leader in the area of contrast resolution, which also impacts the diagnostic utility of images.
