Spectrum Dynamics Medical and Kromek Group plc announce the introduction of the world’s first digital SPECT/CT scanner using Kromek digital detector for higher sensitivity and throughput
Based on Spectrum Dynamics digital SPECT/CT platform, VERITON-CT 400 Series’ detector technology provides the benefits of increased sensitivity and throughput for Nuclear Medicine clinical applications using up to 400keV high-energy isotopes. Spectrum Dynamics Medical, a global leader in digital Nuclear Medicine SPECT and SPECT/CT scanners, and Kromek Group plc, a leading developer of high-performance detectors based on cadmium zinc telluride (CZT), today announced the integration of Kromek CZT detectors in Spectrum digital SPECT/CT products, the VERITON-CT 400 series. CZT is transforming the detector technology used in medical imaging leading to shorter scan times, lower radiation dose to the patient, and improved image quality and quantitative accuracy. Kromek’s high-performance digital detectors, combined with Spectrum’s 360-degree, wide-bore SPECT/CT scanner and its advanced image reconstruction algorithms, increase the energy range up to 400 keV to support the throughput demand of current and new emerging nuclear medicine clinical applications.
