June 8, 2015 - Kromek announced the launch of eVance, a new generation of cadmium zinc telluride (CZT)-based SPECT (single photon emission computed tomography) cameras.
eVance combines Kromek's eV-CZT detectors, fully integrated with advanced ASICs and microelectronics technology. This enables OEMs to integrate turn-key CZT cameras into almost all nuclear medical imaging systems being sold today, for the diagnosis of disease based on the detection of radiation emitting from within the body. Based on clinical data from thousands of patients, the improved efficiency and image quality of CZT-based SPECT cameras is delivering superior sensitivity and specificity compared with standard scintillator cameras. The impact to the patient is better diagnostic performance while reducing their overall radiation exposure.
Kromek initiated a program to simplify the market adoption curve to CZT-based semiconductor sensor technology by offering the OEMs eVance cameras as an off-the-shelf solution. The company has begun shipping its Small Field of View cameras for a thyroid application and will introduce other camera sizes to address specific SPECT imaging applications.
