This part of IEC 61675 specifies terminology and test methods for describing the characteristics of GAMMA CAMERAS equipped with PARALLEL HOLE COLLIMATORS for planar imaging. Additional tests are specified for those GAMMA CAMERAS that are capable of planar wholebody imaging (PLANAR WHOLEBODY IMAGING EQUIPMENT) or SINGLE PHOTON EMISSION COMPUTED TOMOGRAPHY (SPECT). These GAMMA CAMERAS consist of a gantry, single or multiple DETECTOR HEADS, and a computer for data acquisition, processing, storage, and display. The DETECTOR HEADS may contain single or multiple scintillation crystals or solid state detectors.
No test has been specified to characterize the uniformity of reconstructed images because all methods known so far will mostly reflect the noise of the image.
