NMToolKit Analysis

NMToolKit Analysis supports NEMA acceptance testing protocols and routine SPECT Gamma Camera QC.

NEMA processing tools;

  • Intrinsic spatial resolution and intrinsic spatial linearity
  • Multiple window spatial registration
  • System spatial resolution with and without scatter
  • SPECT reconstructed spatial resolution without scatter
  • SPECT reconstructed spatial resolution with scatter
  • Flood field uniformity
  • System planar sensitivity

SPECT QC processing tools;

Deluxe Jaszczak phantom (Data Spectrum, Durham, NC);

  • Reconstructed image uniformity
  • Contrast - solid spheres

Ectphan™ (The Phantom Laboratory, Salem, NY);
