New Siemens SPECT Imager Brings New Workflow, Imaging Benefits

October 15, 2007 – Siemens recently introduced the new Symbia E series SPECT imager at the 2007 European Association of Nuclear Medicine (EANM) Annual Congress.

The Symbia E is the newest addition to the Symbia family of SPECT and SPECT•CT imaging systems. It provides users with a high-quality SPECT imager that can lead to improved clinical confidence, reliability and versatility.

Based on state-of-the-art Symbia SPECT•CT technology, Symbia E leverages the strength of the e.cam. The Symbia E boasts features that will reportedly allow providers to work with increased confidence because of the system’s improved image quality and increased reliability; these will lead to an accelerated workflow. The system can also be upgraded as a facility’s workload grows.

The Symbia E offers syngo workflow solutions such as an integrated physician worklist and it provides imaging in half the time for cardiology and oncology patients, when using cardio•Flash and onco•Flash reconstruction software packages, according to the company. With the Symbia E, facilities will be able to see a wide range of patients from pediatrics to bariatrics and can also be equipped with special positioning pallets for mammography. It also sports a tilting detector for optimized planar imaging.
