Think Whole-body Dynamic PET Imaging is for Research Only? Perhaps it’s Time to Re-evaluate
With the introduction of continuous bed motion technology, whole-body dynamic PET imaging becomes more practical in clinical routine, and less cumbersome in research settings.
SPECT Replacement Enables Efficiency and Service Line Expansion
Boice-Willis Clinic, a primary care and multi-specialty practice with seven locations in North Carolina, USA, replaced two aging SPECT scanners with one Siemens Symbia Evo Excel. Edward O’Neal, MHA, RT(R)(CT), Imaging Manager, and Candie Wachowicz, RT(R)(N), Nuclear Medicine Technologist, talk about the process.
Time-of-Flight Paves the Way to Faster Scans and Lower Radiation Dose
Researchers at Central Manchester University Hospital in the United Kingdom conducted a study to optimize their Time-of-Flight-equipped PET/CT scanner. As a result, the institution adopted a new protocol that has led to reduced radiation exposure to patients and staff, and has provided the flexibility to perform more scans per year.
Getting Hybrid Scanners to Run “Like a Swiss Watch”
Leveraging PET/CT and SPECT/CT scanners for both molecular imaging and dedicated CT saves space, time and budget at the Hirslanden Klinik St. Anna in the Swiss Alps. But it is the image quality and range of sophisticated applications they deliver that distinguish this 200-bed hospital.
FlowMotion Delivers Sharp Images, Accurate Data
At the University of Tennessee Medical Center in Knoxville, Tennessee, USA, FlowMotion is providing diagnostic confidence and reducing scan time for thousands of cancer patients.
Symbia Intevo Transforms Dutch Hospital with State-of-the-art SPECT/CT
When Slingeland Hospital decided to update its nuclear medicine department, it acquired Siemens’ next-generation SPEC/CT, Symbia Intevo. Six months later, the Dutch hospital was expanding its referral base in orthopedics and increasing its overall productivity.
syngo.via for Molecular Imaging Reduces Labor, Speeds Interpretation
Increasing the volume of patients at a PET facility may come with many challenges. The need for greater efficiency is fundamental as physicians interpret more images each day.
Compact Gamma Camera Fits German Clinic’s Plans to Modernize
A compact design, augmented by high performance and patient-friendly features, led administrators at radprax MVZ to choose Siemens’ Symbia Evo Excel.
The statements by Siemens customers described herein are based on results that were achieved in the customer’s unique setting. Since there is no “typical” hospital and many variables exist (e.g., hospital size, case mix, level of IT adoption), there can be no guarantee that other customers will achieve the same results.
