Spectrum Dynamics announced its newest development in digital nuclear medicine imaging: the capability to image high energy isotopes using solid-state detector technology in a 3600-CZT based, wide-bore SPECT/CT configuration. This functionality is available in the new VERITON-CT 400 Series Digital SPECT/CT scanners, enabling total body, brain, heart and other imaging applications.
"This truly represents a transformation in how we will image high energy isotopes: with the sensitivity benefits of digital detector technology, advanced reconstruction algorithms and total body coverage in 3D, both patients and clinicians will benefit from this innovation", said Nathaniel Roth, VP Research and Development and Clinical Research, Spectrum Dynamics.
The VERITON-CT 400 Series features Spectrum Dynamics' design, with its 3600 ring-shaped gantry with 12 swiveling CZT detectors. During the scan, the digital detectors automatically follow the patient's body contour, providing improved proximity for increased sensitivity and better image quality. This design results in three times the volumetric sensitivity for routine 3D hybrid imaging without compromising patients comfort or department workflow. The scanner is available in 16-slice CT and 64-slice CT configuration enabling localization and attenuation correction for accurate quantification.
