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.”

The system’s TruFlow application offers fast, real-time SPECT/CT dynamic imaging to capture the radiopharmaceutical distribution, uptake or clearance time in 3D. The Veriton-CT system scans from head to toe in hybrid mode, maximising clinical scanner utilisation and providing detailed information in a single 3D scan. Its integrated digital platform handles routine 3D workflow to streamline and optimise each step, from image acquisition to advanced quantitative reconstruction, and data analysis and review.

“With Veriton SPECT/CT, nuclear medicine specialists benefit from a reproducible workflow for every operator, patient condition or scan. Additionally, users have a platform designed to support nuclear medicine diagnostic imaging and research applications,” states Spectrum.
