Link Medical are delighted to announce that the UK’s first 64 slice SPECT-CT system, Veriton-CT64, has been installed in the Department of Nuclear Medicine at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital, Birmingham.
Chris Boivin, Consultant Clinical Scientist, commented ‘We felt it was vital that the latest technology was available to our patients. The Spectrum Dynamics Veriton-CT system will enable our department to perform SPECT-CT examinations with higher resolution and shorter imaging times compared to conventional dual detector systems. In addition, the ability to perform dynamic SPECT, for example for Coronary Blood Flow, will enhance our department’s diagnostic capabilities. We also feel that the 64 slice CT option will provide superior capabilities compared to 16 slice systems.’
Peter Dobson, Link Medical’s CEO, said ‘We would like to thank all in QEH’s Nuclear Medicine team for their support and we look forward to co-operating and working with the department to develop the potential of Veriton-CT in the future.’
