Queen’s Medical Centre, part of Nottingham University Hospitals NHS Trust, has purchased a Philips BrightView XCT gamma camera, a system has been designed specifically for nuclear medicine with the benefit that NM technicians do not require CT retraining.
Dr Rakesh Ganatra, consultant radiologist, nuclear medicine physician and PETCT specialist, said: “This is very new technology, combining a gamma camera with CT with a small footprint, which means that it fits conveniently into a standard nuclear medicine room.
“It is affordable SPECT/CT technology, easy to operate and the technologists like the camera. We receive aftercare from Philips which is essential for continuous service provision.”
