Solution to Picture of the week #3, and this week’s image. October 2, 2007

Posted by tomography in Picture of the week, Uncategorized.

Take a look at the following image, that will help you better visualize the way SPECT images are taken. Therefor, if you go back to last week’s image, which as zslog pointed out was taken after the so-called dobutamine stress test, you may easily identify the parts with poor perfusion. (Scroll down for the solution to last week’s image).


Solution to image of the week # 3:

  • From the HLA – horizontal long axis view – you can tell, that the septum has perfusion defect, and
  • From the SA – short axis view – and the VLA – vertical long axis view – you can tell that the apex of the heart is hypo-oxygenated.

And here is this week’s image:


  • What kind of image is this?
  • Identify 3 abnormalities on it.
  • What could have caused this trauma?

KoponyaCT felvétel. A perietalis régióban talán subduralis elváltozás: hameathoma? Középvonali áttolással. Az érintett oldali oldalkamra fel sem ismerhető. Bár ahogy látom egy gyermekről készült a felvétel. Lehet hogy régi az elváltozás.
