The implementation of cardiac PET/CT imaging technology is an exciting step towards providing advanced cardiology treatment and revolutionary patient care.
For Nuclear Medicine Technologists, the successful integration of PET/CT is a challenging task with many variables to consider. New imaging equipment involves increased technical expertise and training. Technologists often find themselves in a position where they have to work alongside experienced PET/CT operators while becoming knowledgeable about new technology processes and how to deliver more efficient and accurate results.
Technologists are faced with the responsibility of weighing the advantages and disadvantages of all available technology within their department and developing strategies that utilize every capability to its maximum potential. Factors such as reduced radiation dosage and exposure with PET/CT compared to SPECT will also weigh heavily on their decisions to adopt an imaging treatment that’s best-suited for every specific patient and diagnosis.
