                         of myocardial perfusion SPECT studies and assessment of myocardium 
                         defect regions. Myocardial perfusion SPECT is widely used in the 
                         evaluation of post-infarction patients, in order to foretell the 
                         patients future conditions. Our approach is based on the use of 
                         polar maps, a two-dimensional plot of the reconstructed volume 
                         from the SPECT study. Using an automatic technique for polar map 
                         creation, based on image registration techniques, we were able to 
                         generate six different polar maps, allowing medical visual 
                         interpretation and analysis of myocardium defect regions.",
