First clinical studies with a Fresnel zone plate radioisotope imager demonstrate high resolution, sharp tomography, and freedom from scatter. Improved radionuclide imaging is demonstrated, at least for small organs like the thyroid. Certain limitations are present that indicate a need for additional development before application to routine clinical practice.
