    Abstract

    Photopeak window projections from different energy photons were investigated to determine whether they can be combined into a single window for reconstruction or if it is better not combine the projections due to differences in the attenuation maps required for each photon energy. With the development and availability of hardware to obtain patient specific attenuation maps using transmission imaging protocols has improve multi-energy photon radionuclide images quantitatively and visually.
