The properties of the maximum likelihood with expectation maximization (ML-EM) and the weighted least squares with conjugate gradient (WLS-CG) algorithms for use in compensation for attenuation and detector response in cardiac SPECT imaging were studied. A realistic phantom, derived from a patient X-ray CT study to simulate 201Tl SPECT data, was used in the investigation. In general, the convergence rate of the WLS-CG algorithm is about ten times that of the ML-EM algorithm. Also, the WLS-CG exhibits a faster increase in image noise at large iteration numbers than the ML-EM algorithm
