Journal Article

A three-dimensional gantry single photon emission tomograph with hemispherical coverage for dedicated breast imaging was discussed. Projections with all photopeak window and camera tilt conditions were reconstructed with an ordered subsets expectation maximization (OSEM) algorithm capable of reconstructing arbitrary tomographic orbits. Results showed that contrasts increased while signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) decreased with OSEM reconstruction.
