Pro-NM Performance


PET and SPECT Image Performance Evaluation

Phantom for high spatial resolution SPECT and PET systems for performance evaluation (collimator, artifacts, calibration, reconstruction parameters). It can be used to evaluate, for example: center-of-rotation error, non-uniformity artifacts, changes of radius-of-rotation on spatial resolution, reconstruction filters on spatial resolution, attenuation and scatter compensation.
