It is important of diagnosing not only primary tumors but also metastases accurately. Recently, we have established murine lymph node metastasis model and developed a new method to reconstruct the two- and three-dimensional (2D/3D) vessel structures in the model by using nanobubbles (NBs) and high- frequency ultrasound imaging system. In the present study, we investigated the characteristics of 2D/3D vessel ...

Parallel-beam Tilted-Head SPECT (TH-SPECT) was previously implemented on a SPECT system for its potential to image breast lesions and nearby axilla of seated, upright women. All TH-SPECT reconstructions will contain artifacts since the tilted orbit does not satisfy the Orlov sampling criteria. However, it is not clear which reconstruction method, if any, is better suited for TH- SPECT data. Here ...

Describes the development of a new digital phantom designed for Monte Carlo simulations of breast cancer and particularly PET imaging of the axillary lymph nodes. The phantom was based on data from the Visible Human Project(R) female data set. The phantom covers the head to diaphragm regions; 17 major tissue types were segmented and 66 individual lymph nodes were identified. ...

Several methods have been proposed for dedicated SPECT imaging of the breast. Two key characteristics achieved by these methods are shortened distance and lessened attenuation between the SPECT collimator and the breast. However, many of these methods are unable to image the important regions of the axilla and upper chest. Partial-Circle pinhole trajectories can image into the axilla, but only ...


SPECT breast imaging combining horizontal and vertical axes of rotation

Vertical-axis-of-rotation (VAOR) geometries, in which a gamma camera orbits a pendulous breast of a prone patient, have been proposed for SPECT breast imaging. Dedicated VAOR systems would be advantageous since they allow for minimal radius of rotation around the breast, which improves resolution- sensitivity tradeoffs, and there is less attenuation and scatter between the breast and the camera. However, the ...
