Abstract
Myocardial perfusion single photon emission computed tomography (MPS) is one of the most widely used diagnostic methods in patients with suspected ischemic heart disease (IHD). Recently, a novel technique based on cadmium-zinc-telluride (CZT) detectors, pinhole collimators, and a stationary gantry was introduced for MPS. The aim of this work was to investigate how patient positioning affects the reconstructed MPS images using this novel technique.
