by up to 25 percent with the increased sensitivity of SwiftScan Planar and SwiftScan SPECT1
Shorter, more tolerable exams
for greater patient comfort, with Evolution technology2
Diagnose disease earlier
with SwiftScan Planar and SwiftScan SPECT’s improved small lesion detectability3
Featuring Elite NXT NM detectors
Shorter photomultiplier tubes combined with lean front-end electronics reduce analog noise and improve performance. And the wide variety of collimators are optimized to enable high sensitivity, low septal penetration and high resolution even when the detectors are farther from the patient. The result is exceptional NEMA resolution for SPECT in a 13 cm slimmer detector box.
Designed to address some of nuclear medicine’s most significant challenges.
NM 830 includes a new LEHRS (Low Energy High Resolution and Sensitivity) collimator
This new feature can be combined with either SPECT Step & Shoot Continuous scanning mode or our Planar Clarity 2D processing to increase sensitivity and enable reduction of scan times or injected dose¹.
NM 830 brings you the diagnostic capability of a dual-head SPECT system
This enables a focus on patient comfort. With low total cost of ownership and straight-forward upgrade paths to more advanced capabilities, this system is the foundation of our general purpose nuclear medicine portfolio.
1 Compared to LEHR collimator, with Step & Shoot scan mode (for SPECT) / without Clarity 2D (for Planar). As demonstrated in phantom testing using a bone scan protocol, Evolution processing (for SPECT), and a model observer. Because model observer results may not always match those from a human reader, the actual time/dose reduction depends on the clinical task, patient size, anatomical location and clinical practice. A radiologist should determine the appropriate scan time/dose for the particular clinical task.
2 In clinical practice, Evolution options2a (Evolution for Bone, Evolution for Cardiac, Evolution for Bone Planar) and Evolution Toolkit2b are recommended for use following consultation of a Nuclear Medicine physician, physicist and/or application specialist to determine the appropriate dose or scan time reduction to obtain diagnostic image quality for a particular clinical task, depending on the protocol adopted by the clinical site.
2a Evolution Options - Evolution claims are supported by simulation of count statistics using default factory protocols and imaging of 99mTc based radiotracers with LEHR collimator on anthropomorphic phantom or realistic NCAT – SIMSET phantom followed by quantitative and qualitative images comparison.
2b Evolution Toolkit - Evolution Toolkit claims are supported by simulation of full count statistics using lesion simulation phantom images based on various radiotracers and collimators and by showing that SPECT image quality reconstructed with Evolution Toolkit provide equivalent clinical information but have better signal-to-noise, contrast, and lesion resolution compared to the images reconstructed with FBP / OSEM.
