MUGA Phantom Data

Medical Physicist Mike Avison from Royal Bradford Infirmary has shared his useful resource link with the BNMS for testing repeatability of operators and/or software.

These data may be helpful to anyone:-
Comparing MUGA processing software for compatibility of EF calculation
Testing software for reproducibility
Testing operators for inter-operator reproducibility

Right click on the link and save as.

If operators are involved you would want to mix studies from the different groups.

Note that the first 6 links are just single study examples, the next 6 are zip files with over 10 studies in each. 

(Dicom viewer is required to open files.)

If anyone wants to compare results, request some different data etc Mike would be happy to hear from you.

IAEA - Release of Nuclear Cardiology publication & recorded seminar series

The publication "Nuclear Cardiology: Guidance on the Implementation of SPECT Myocardial Perfusion Imaging” IAEA Human Health Series No. 23, has been released.

This publication is a result of collaboration between renowned experts in the field and IAEA scientific staff members. It provides a detailed analysis of all the steps involved in the delivery of nuclear cardiology services, from referrals to reporting, and is intended to serve as guidance for the implementation, homogenization and enhancement of MPI practice in those Member States where the technique is under development.

We hope that this publication will further facilitate increased knowledge and better understanding of Nuclear Cardiology and its role as a cost effective tool for the evaluation and management of cardiac patients and its importance in diagnosis, prognosis and risk stratification.

For access to download the publication select the following link Nuclear Cardiology: Guidance on the Implementation of SPECT Myocardial Perfusion Imaging

Furthermore the IAEA’s Nuclear Medicine and Diagnostic Imaging Section, together with the European Society of Nuclear Medicine (EANM) present you a selection of recorded seminars from the series on ‘Basic Nuclear Medicine’ and ‘Paediatric Nuclear Medicine’.

Dynamic Renal Scintigraphy Database

Under the auspices of ISCORN - International Scientific Committee on Radionuclide Nephrourology (, the database of dynamic renal scitigraphy has been created.

Dynamic Renal Study is a non-profit database of anonymous dynamic renal studies completed by clinical and laboratory information. Registration to the database is free. It can be used as standard data set for inter-laboratory comparisons, clinical audits, development and testing computer programs, teaching and training, etc. Without registration, one can browse the database, view the images and time-activity curves, and also read available texts. After registration, a user can download image data of dynamic renal scinitgraphy in DICOM or Interfile formats (readable by most current camera systems) and the tables with clinical and laboratory information.
