Siemens Healthineers Debuts New Version of c.cam Cardiac SPECT System

Easy-to-install system with reclining patient chair and Windows cybersecurity package provides low total cost of ownership

Siemens Healthineers has introduced a new version of its c.cam dedicated cardiac nuclear medicine system to the U.S. market. This single-photon emission computed tomography (SPECT) scanner with a reclining patient chair offers nuclear cardiology providers a low total cost of ownership, ease of installation, and a high level of image quality.

September 30, 2020 — Siemens Healthineers has introduced a new version of its c.cam dedicated cardiac nuclear medicine system to the U.S. market. This single-photon emission computed tomography (SPECT) scanner with a reclining patient chair offers nuclear cardiology providers a low total cost of ownership, ease of installation, and a high level of image quality.

The c.cam has a comfortable, reclining patient chair with a 450 lb. weight limit rather than a flat table. This chair improves access to care by allowing the patient to remain seated comfortably during scanning to minimize respiratory motion and cardiac image artifacts. The system’s integrated, bi-directional camera arm permits easier patient positioning, and the small field of view is optimized for cardiac procedures. The scanner’s new Windows software platform contains enhanced cybersecurity features that limit access by non-authorized personnel. With a small 8 ft. x 8 ft. footprint, the c.cam can be installed in just two days with minimal room modeling requirements. Applications training can be completed in only three days. The c.cam also has a standard five-year warranty.

"This new version of the c.cam SPECT scanner, which is being introduced in response to customer demand, is designed to provide an affordable, easy-to-install system that doesn’t sacrifice image quality and enhances the overall patient experience,” said John Khoury, vice president of molecular imaging at Siemens Healthineers North America.
