Estimated Enrollment: 20
Detailed Description:

The goal of this protocol is to develop and evaluate a novel SPECT imaging technique for imaging the breast using rotating multi-segment slant-hole (RMSSH) collimators. The motivation is the requirement of a low cost RMSSH collimator and a conventional LFOV camera. It is believed that RMSSH SPECT is particularly suitable for applications in breast imaging.
