    Abstract

    Single Photon Emission Computed Tomography (SPECT) is one of the diagnostic modality of Nuclear Medicine technology, which is used as an important tool for diagnosis of diseases in human. The limits of this modality among the others are due to equipment and the gamma photon physics viz., scattering and absorption of gamma photons in the patient's body. Due to the scatter effect image quality is degraded and the non-linearity in the quantitation of radioactivity uptake is resulted.
