December 4, 2020 — Spectrum Dynamics Medical, Inc., has received Canadian Medical Device License from Health Canada for its premium digital SPECT/64-slice CT scanner, VERITON-CT64. VERITON-CT64 is designed for both, total body and organ-focused, hybrid imaging with shorter scan times, at lower injected activity when compared to current analog dual-detector technology.

VERITON-CT64 SPECT/CT digital technology plus unique design enables routine hybrid 3D imaging for cardiac, brain, lung indications, and for the first time, total body hybrid SPECT/CT imaging. Head to toes SPECT/CT scan in less than 20 minutes: avoids the additional scanning that is needed when planar imaging is used for whole-body scans. Easy on the patient, fluid on the schedule, comprehensive in the clinical information it provides, digital imaging with VERITON-CT64 provides significant benefits to clinicians and patients.

“It’s not just using digital detector technology that enables clinical benefits, it is also the ring-shaped gantry design that allows simultaneous 360-degree coverage around the patient for improved image quality and throughput,” said Jim Haisler, Vice President of Global Commercial Operations for Spectrum Dynamics. “At a time when equipment purchase decisions are so critical, VERITON-CT64 provides essential technology to maximize procedure type flexibility, dose management and significantly improve imaging efficiency.”

VERITON-CT16 is also approved for sales in Canada. Both feature 80-cm bore size gantry and integrated Operator’s Console that includes the latest reconstruction and post processing applications for absolute quantitative image analysis in SPECT/CT.
