Single-photon emission computed tomography (SPECT) is a non-invasive, nuclear medicine imaging technique (similar to PET), combining the information gained from scintigraphy with that of CT.
SPECT provides metabolic and functional information.
SPECT may be combined with a separate CT machine, providing hybrid imaging: single photon emission computed tomography-computerised tomography (SPECT-CT).
