Power of 3C Imaging for SPECT/CT Unleashed at SNM

June 18, 2008 - GE Healthcare launched applications to expand the capabilities of the company’s Infinia Hawkeye 4 SPECT/CT, offered as Volumetrix Suite, at SNM 2008, offering to help the clinician by providing improved clarity: helping to manage large amounts of data more effectively by providing an accurate, interactive, 3D rendered fused image of the entire nuclear medicine studies.

It offers improved clarity with segmentation tools that can help improve diagnostic accuracy by easily removing obstructions surrounding lesions and other areas of interest. Volumetrix 3D also helps manage large amounts of data more effectively by providing an accurate, 3D rendered fused image of the entire SPECT/CT procedure. Finally, the software offers a Clip and Cut Planes feature, which allows the anatomy to be “virtually sliced” to show the underlying cross-section of the CT, nuclear or fused slices. The software presents a visual abstract of the exam very quickly & comprehensively for use by the referring physician or surgeon.

Volumetrix IR offers clinicians the choice of registering virtually any CT to the Infinia SPECT data, within the nuclear medicine workflow. This feature eliminates the need for patients to undergo a redundant full-dose CT exam during a SPECT acquisition by using the Hawkeye CT as a guide to register an external CT to the Infinia SPECT data. Volumetrix IR is designed to offer a balanced solution for today’s challenging healthcare economic environment.

Follow-up scans are reportedly made easier, because Volumetrix IR automatically aligns two exams, helping to ensure accurate monitoring of the patient’s condition. Three-dimensional rendered images created by Volumetrix 3D are easily exported into a variety of formats including .jpg files for easy sharing with referring physicians, surgeons and the patients themselves.
