V/Q SPECT – Normal Values for Lobar Function and Comparison With CT Volumes

First Author: Bailey DL, Last Author: Lau EM

"An advantage of using Technegas as the ventilation agent and radiolabelled macro-aggregated albumin microspheres as the perfusion agent is that the deposition pattern is fixed upon administration and thus different patient postures can be studied and the effect of gravity and position determined, even though the scans must be acquired with the subject supine using conventional gamma camera SPECT/CT systems"
