Single photon emission tomography computed tomography (SPECT/CT) imaging, with its innate ability to detect and characterise abnormalities in their earliest forms, can be a meaningful tool for determining prompt diagnoses and developing personalised treatment strategies. Such a tool is invaluable as we move towards precision medicine, and the significant addition of reliable quantitative measurements only enhances SPECT/CT’s opportunities. Quantitative SPECT/CT looks to establish an active role in the next era of healthcare, but the extent of its impact continues to be defined.
