Does anyone know if it is possible to get a SPECT scan of a quality comparable to Columbia? Looking for a friend in the D.C. area. Mine was done at Columbia and that is too far away for this person. Have heard something about the number of heads used in the machine, and the ability of the interpreter to read the scan.

Any advice, suggestions?

ability to interpret the scan appears to be the key. Columbia does that best.

i trekked from MD to Columbia because i couldn't find a good alternative closer. Maybe that's changed? I suggest your friend contact Columbia directly to ask for suggestions.
