Cardiac emission tomography using a seven-pinhole collimator has received only little appreciation as a diagnostic imaging technique. The main reasons are the limited angular sampling of the seven-pinhole device and the difficulties encountered in properly positioning the patient relative to the collimator/camera system. In order to overcome these problems, we have developed a modified ART3 algorithm for reconstruction of the radioactivity distribution in the heart. The method is very appropriate for seven-pinhole tomography, as demonstrated by the quality of the reconstructions, by the excellent point source resolution of the system response, and by a comparison to two other suitable reconstruction techniques, viz., SMART and SIRT.
