SPECT-CT

SPECT-CT combines single-photon emission computerized tomography (SPECT) detectors and computed tomography (CT) into one imaging system.

The Biograph mCT PET/CT scanner enables facilities to serve both the nuclear medicine and the radiology departments with one system. It offers CT configurations up to 128 slices. Siemens also offers the Symbia family of SPECT and SPECT/CT scanners.
