Bath hospital finds 360° CZT SPECT/CT reduces indeterminate findings

In 2007, Spectrum Dynamics introduced D-SPECT, which it says was the first cadmium zinc telluride (CZT) cardiac SPECT scanner. The Veriton-CT system was introduced in 2017 for total body nuclear CZT SPECT/CT, with a 360° ring-shaped gantry and 12 swivelling CZT solid state detectors.

Royal United Hospital, Bath, consultant radiologist and clinical lead for nuclear medicine Dr David Little said: “360° CZT SPECT/CT is a big step forward in the technology. Due to its increased sensitivity and faster scanning times, we have moved to whole body SPECT/CT, reducing indeterminate findings and picking up more pathology. We have looked at patient experience and demonstrated that patients tolerate 360° CZT well.”
