Abstract

The process of quality control starts with ensuring safe measurement and administration of radiopharmaceuticals to the patient. The mechanisms to ensure this will be reviewed. Optimal functioning nuclear cardiology imaging equipment is also essential. Methods to evaluate and monitor quality performance of the imaging equipment will be described. Finally, variability at the patient level can lead to signifi cant artifacts in the images. Mechanisms to recognize and reduce these artifacts will be discussed.
