There are numerous challenges involved with molecular imaging of obese patients, including issues with radioisotope dosing and image acquisition and interpretation, according to Dr. Abdelhamid H. Elgazzar of Kuwait University. "It's crucial to take safety precautions and devise a strategy for preparation and interpretation of studies for this population," Elgazzar said. While researchers work to improve image quality, vendors are working to address logistical challenges with imaging cameras and tables that are more suited for such patients.
