Abstract

A study was carried out to characterize the performance of the new E.CAM+ dual-gamma camera imaging system with coincidence imaging capability. The intrinsic spatial resolution, scatter fraction, sensitivity, count-rate capability, energy resolution, and clinical image quality were evaluated. The results show that the dual-headed NaI[Tl]-based gamma camera will be suitable for FDG imaging in oncologic applications with superior energy resolution but inferior sensitivity as compared to traditional cylindrical PET tomographs.
