Case Study Submission

Case studies are required in order to assess the interpretative and technical quality of the facility. All cases must be selected from within one year prior to the date of submission, and at least one case must have been interpreted by the Medical Director. All studies and reports should reflect the highest quality of studies performed in the facility.

  • Select sample cases from as many current medical and technical staff members who interpret or perform any nuclear medicine examinations in the facility as possible. The Medical Director must be represented.
  • Case selection is not camera dependent. You may select cases from any camera in your facility.
  • Not more than one case per procedure type should be normal.
  • All (or both) cases from multiple sites must be abnormal.
  • Cases are to be contemporary (performed with current personnel on current equipment).
  • Abnormal studies have positive findings or demonstrate pathology. For example, an MPI study with breast or subdiaphragmatic attenuation would not qualify as abnormal.
