Glasgow Royal sees major benefits to patient throughput after installation of cardio system

Glasgow Royal Infirmary’s department of nuclear cardiology has increased patient throughput since receiving a D-SPECT Cardio system from Link Medical, distributor for the Spectrum Dynamics range of gamma cameras.

D-SPECT Cardio is equipped with dynamic SPECT imaging that is capable of performing coronary flow reserve and is said to produce high resolution MPI images at a fraction of the time of conventional technologies.

Head of nuclear cardiology Dr Craig Paterson said: “As one of the country’s busiest nuclear cardiology departments we have greatly benefited from the flexibility that the digital CZT technology in the D-SPECT offers us. In particular, the increased sensitivity of the system has had a major impact on increasing patient throughput in the department, allowing us to reduce waiting times and continue to recover from the COVID-19 crisis.
