CardiArc recently released a cardiac SPECT system with reportedly twice the resolution of existing devices designed to render sharper images of blood flow and function of their patients’ hearts – in reportedly half the time previously required. Specifically designed for use in outpatient settings and emergency rooms, the system fits easily in a 6-by-7-foot exam room without remodeling and runs on 110 Volts AC. The device uses solid-state CZT technology (cadmium zinc telluride). With no visible moving parts, patients sit upright, and according to the manufacturer, scan times range from two to six minutes at physician discretion.
