A trend in nuclear cardiac myocardial perfusion imaging in recent years has been toward smaller gamma cameras that can be easily be installed in outpatient offices, which Siemens highlighted at ACC 2009 with its c.cam SPECT system.

The c.cam features a comfortable chair that comes in numerous colors, and state-of-the-art SPECT imaging technology. The digital detectors offer a five-channel row and column decoding per individual PMT for better image quality. The detector heads are mounted in a 90-degree fixed position and have lightweight autoform collimators that can be changed by hand. The chair has a cut out section to reduce attenuation artifacts and for clear line of sights.

Siemens says the system is easy to install within two days in an 8-by-8-foot area footprint.
