Quantification Hands-on Workshop (DaTQUANT)

Ioflupane (­123I) - 20 years of DaT-SPECT imaging


Organized by:


Quantifying Ioflupane (123I) images using DaTQUANT™

DaTQUANT™ is a software tool that enables visual evaluation providing automated, reproducible, and accurate quantification capabilities. This semiquantitative “Hands on Experience” will provide insights focused on:
• More ways to manually adjust the ROI
• Importing compressed DICOM data from PACS,
• Customizing normal database graphs and table
of quantified values
• Easier comparison of serial/longitudinal studies
of the same subject

Ioflupane (123I) - 20 years of DaT-SPECT imaging

Markedly abnormal Ioflupane (123I) in one or both putamina is the diagnostic pattern for PD in patients with clinically confirmed PD. This pattern which has been helping to confirm the diagnosis in patients with unclear clinical presentations since 2000 will be presented and discussed in our round table with our guests.
