SPECT-CT

  • Nuclear myocardial perfusion imaging (MPI) with positron emission tomography (PET) and single-photon emission computed tomography (SPECT) have been the gold standard for noninvasive detection of coronary ischemia and infarcts. However, the high radiation doses patients receive are making some...
  • Siemens Healthcare has introduced the Symbia Evo Excel SPECT (single-photon emission computed tomography) system—a new version of the company’s Symbia E system that combines SPECT image resolution and detector sensitivity with the smallest room size requirement in its class.
  • DAIC Editor Dave Fornell shares his choices for the most innovative new technologies in nuclear imaging that were on display at the 2014 Society of Nuclear Medicine and Molecular Imaging (SNMMI) annual meeting.
  • Discovery NM/CT 670 Pro, SPECT/CT
    GE Healthcare introduced the Discovery NM/CT 670 Pro at the Society of Nuclear Medicine and Molecular Imaging Annual Meeting (SNMMI 2014). Quantitative accuracy in nuclear medicine is enabled by Q.Metrix and Q.AC, GE Healthcare's newest software innovations in nuclear medicine.
  • June 5, 2014 — Fairview Health Services, Minneapolis, recently became the first U.S. healthcare facility to install the Symbia Intevo xSPECT system from Siemens Healthcare. The first ever xSPECT system, the Symbia Intevo fully integrates single-photon emission computed tomography (SPECT) and CT...

Dual-energy scanning

Dual-energy scanning, achieved on Siemens’ Definition Edge, reduces severe artifacts caused by an implanted pump (left), clearly visualizing surrounding anatomical structures (right). The twin-beam, single-source Edge is one of several platforms that can characterize tissues and structures according to the atomic numbers of their elements. (Image courtesy of Siemens Healthcare)

UltraSPECT, dose management, lower dose SPECT

UltraSPECT's image reconstruction software can be used on older SPECT systems to allow lower-dose imaging. This is an example of the software's imaging capability using between 30-50 percent less dose.

Coronary CTA on the Somatom Force produces high-resolution stent imaging with a 0.18 second scan at 70 kV exposing the patient to just 0.43 mSv. The patient's heart rate varied between 58 to 70 bmp during the exam. Color image shows two long stents. The curved MPR image in grayscale shows the details in the LAD stent.
