Siemens' latest SPECT system Symbia Evo is designed to significantly increase productivity and offers the potential to double patient throughput compared with conventional SPECT systems: for example, by automating routine manual tasks. Nuclear cardiologists who use the new system can increase efficiency through a fourfold reduction in scan time with IQ-SPECT cardiac imaging technology. While routine SPECT cardiac acquisitions typically take about 16 minutes and risk patient movement that may result in lower image quality, a field-upgradeable hardware and software combination of Symbia Evo and IQ-SPECT enables a reduction in imaging time to four minutes with a standard dose. This image shows a traditional cardiac SPECT scan.
