Example text

Functional imaging with positron-emitting isotopes was fi rst proposed in the early 1950s as an imaging technique that could offer greater sensitivity than conventional nuclear medicine techniques with single photon–emitting isotopes. The SPECT collimator is eliminated and replaced by electronic collimation—the coincident detection of 2 photons from positron annihilation—which greatly increases the sensitivity of the imaging system. However, other than some early prototypes in the 1960s, instrumentation to image positron emitters did not emerge seriously until the 1970s, and the first commercial PET scanners date from around 1980, about the time MRI also became commercially available.

Rapid commercial development followed the introduction of the first CT scanner in 1972, and within 3 years of its appearance more than 12 companies were marketing, or intending to market, CT scanners; about half that number actually market CT scanners today. With the introduction of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) in the early 1980s, CT was, at that time, predicted to last another 5 years at most before being replaced by MRI for anatomical imaging. Obviously, this did not happen, and today, with multislice detectors, spiral acquisition, and subsecond rotation times, CT continues to develop and to play a major role in clinical imaging, in particular for the assessment of cardiovascular disease.
