SPECT Imaging System Features Lightweight Design, Special Configuration

A fixed 90-degree dual-headed motion-free SPECT imaging system, Nuclear Cardiology Systems Inc.’s (NCS) CardioCam has several features and options to choose from.

According to the company, the design is lightweight, has an easy to install gantry and it’s configured specifically for cardiac imaging and limited general nuclear imaging. It also has real-time cross correction for each energy level and different collimators.

Utilizing dual detectors in a fixed 90-degree configuration, the CardioCam permits motion-free imaging that is said to virtually eliminate patient artifacts due to movement. Previously unattainable image resolution may reportedly be achieved by a detector-patient distance of less then 2.0 cm and high-resolution collimation.

Operation is simplified by swing table technology for patient comfort and by computerized operator setup using "push-button" and track ball controls, said the company.

Options include additional collimators, a collimator cart and SPECT table accessories.
