Design and Development of Small Organ Imaging Gamma Camera System    

Scope: A Small Organ Imaging Gamma Camera is an innovative step towards providing a low-cost solution for imaging organs of small size. We propose to develop a Small Organ Imaging Gamma Camera for imaging Thyroid organ with all digital Front End Electronics and Data Acquisition System. Working software will be developed for Image Reconstruction and Processing of gamma camera images to detect the cases of abnormalities in thyroid (hyper and hypothyroidism). Performance Comparison will be made with the commercially available large field of view Gamma Cameras.
  
Deliverables
  • A prototype of portable Small Organ Imaging Gamma Camera will be developed for use in Hospitals having Nuclear Medicine Departments and in medical research.
  • Optimizing the performance of developed system for detection of thyroid abnormalities.   
Social Relevance: 

Thyroid diseases are among the commonest endocrine disorders worldwide and in India. According to a recent projection on thyroid disease, it has been estimated that 42 million people in India suffer from thyroid diseases. Early diagnosis and treatment remain the cornerstone of management. Development of portable thyroid specific imaging system which serves as a cheaper alternative to the traditional large field and expensive gamma cameras is the goal of this project. We also believe that the resolution would be better than the traditional Gamma Cameras
