UltraSPECT Xpress3.Cardiac Image Reconstruction Offers Three-Minute Scans


May 4, 2009

The UltraSPECT Xpress3.Cardiac SPECT WBR-based SPECT image reconstruction package reportedly enables short scan times without compromising image quality and diagnostic confidence. The company said the scan times are three minutes for stress and less than five minutes for rest.

The Xpress3.Cardiac is fully automatic, with a single processing protocol for all patients. The hardware platform is based on a quad-core CPU, which can be connected to the gamma camera and workstation network in a matter of hours. The company said this enables quarter-time image acquisition with reconstructions that are the same or better than using standard imaging times. UltraSPECT said there is no extra work required of the technologist, as the image reconstruction process is completely transparent to the department's clinical workflow.
