Features & Benefits
Nuclear Medicine clinical practice requires high-throughput imaging systems that allow a significant reduction in acquisition times without degrading image quality. This is a legitimate request and our answer is the AnyScan TRIO® SPECT/CT multimodality imaging system.
- Decrease Acquisition Time: The average acquisition time can be reduced to a quarter. A whole body bone SPECT/CT scan can be implemented in less than 20 minutes. The shorter acquisition time helps to improve patient comfort and decrease the chance of motion artefacts.
- Maximize Image Quality: Improve diagnostic accuracy and confidence. Significantly higher system resolution and two times better contrast to noise ratio become available compared to the conventional two detector head SPECT systems.
- Reduce Administered Activity: Minimize patient dose and reduce the exposure of the administrator. The smaller amount of applied tracers can dynamically reduce the average radiotracer cost.
Dedicated Brain imaging with SPECT Multi-PinHole technology in clinical research applications
Neurodegenerative diseases, like Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s disease is of paramount importance in nuclear medicine thus Mediso introduces dedicated Brain SPECT multipinhole apertures and matching iterative reconstruction.
- The main application is the brain imaging where a PET-like image resolution could finally be realized
- High resolution brain imaging. One aperture for Alzheimer, Parkinson, Epilepsy
- Shorter acquisition time with usual patient dosage allows 10 minute patient examinations
- In-house developed reconstruction provides better quality images compared to normal parallel hole acquisition
- CT image absorption and scatter correction as part of the Tera-Tomo SPECT MPH-Q reconstruction allows high definition, reproducible and accurate quantitative imaging
Dedicated Cardiac procedures with Multi-PinHole aperture
- Improved heart acquisition methods with extreme high sensitivity and high resolution outcome
- Even 2 minutes long cardio acquisition is possible in a special stationary collection
- Stable ECG gating data for separated analysis of end-diastolic images or even for asynchronous ventricular contraction, but the increased pulse-rate
- Lateral movement of the patient table helps to centralize the heart
High quality CT subsystem
The flexible AnyScan® SPECT system is supplemented by a 16-slice, low dose CT which results in a high resolution image. The detailed CT images help to localize anatomical aberrations and disorders accurately and give an exact input to SPECT acquisition planning. Attenuation correction from the CT image and our special Tera-Tomo™ 3D CT engine ensures sharp, detailed images. Metal correction function is available in CT reconstruction to reduce image artifacts caused by high attenuated orthopedic implants (e.g hip, knee, shoulder).
