Symbia’s collimator changer reduces RSI risk

With St James’s Hospital’s Symbia SPECT/CT scanner are Siemens Healthcare regional account manager Patrick Doherty, nuclear medicine clinical specialist Rachael Pyper and consultant radiologist Dr Niall Sheehy.


St James’s Hospital in Dublin has installed a Symbia T2 SPECT/CT system from Siemens Healthcare in its nuclear medicine department for a range of procedures including cardiology and oncology.  The hospital has also installed clinical workflow server, which allows the processing and reading of SPECT/CT studies from a standard networked PC regardless of location.


“The biggest benefit of the Symbia T2 is its high image quality imaging at low patient injected doses,” said consultant radiologist Dr Niall Sheehy.  “In addition to this, is an invaluable tool in facilitating remote reporting from anywhere in the department or further afield.”
