These requirements remain true regardless of the rotational position of the detector. 4. There is a direct correspondence between all detectors in a multiheaded system. In order to ensure the adequate performance of a SPET system, a number of requirements must be met. Firstly, the detectors must have appropriate correction techniques for energy and spatial response. These are often called energy correction and linearity correction and may be calibrated by the manufacturer or the user, depending on system type.

It comprises three rings of diameter 42 cm with 64 NaI(TI) detectors each. SME 810 The SME Strickman Medical Equipment 810 is another brain-dedicated system, but it only scans one slice at a time (Stoddart and Stoddart 1979). Its principles of data acquisition and image reconstruction differ from those of the other systems described. It comprises 12 large (5 X 8 X 1 inches) NaI(TI) detectors, 30° apart around a circle. Each detector is fitted with a point-focused collimator, which collects those photons that happen to travel towards the rectangular area of the detector along a set of lines traversing the focal point.
