This study investigated the performance of SPECT myocardial blood ﬂow (MBF) quantitation lacking full physical corrections (All Corr) in dynamic SPECT (DySPECT) images. Methods. Eleven healthy normal volunteers (HVT) and twenty-four patients with angiog- 99m raphy-documented CAD were assessed. All Corr in Tc-sestamibi DySPECT encompassed noise reduction (NR), resolution recovery (RR), and corrections for scatter (SC)
