Abstract

Previously we designed a dual-purpose multi-pinhole (MPH) collimator for improved clinical myocardial perfusion imaging (MPI) with extra capability of small animal imaging for a clinical gamma camera. However, the standard configuration for current clinical MPI is L-mode with two detectors ∼90° apart. This study aims to design a dual-head L-mode MPH collimator for potential stationary MPI based on a clinical SPECT/CT scanner. Two stationary L-mode configurations, L-mode-I/II, were proposed based on the work of Rittenbach et al. where the long axis of the left ventricle was perpendicular to either camera. With the pre-defined pinhole pattern with minimal projection truncation and
