Link Medical Ltd are delighted to announce that UK’s first Veriton-CT system has been installed at the Royal United Hospital, Bath.
Peter Dobson, Link’s CEO, commented ‘Veriton-CT is a major advance in SPECT-CT imaging. It’s unique simultaneous 360 degree imaging capability combined with advanced, fanning CZT detectors ensure rapid, high quality imaging with enhanced patient compliance.
Dr Stewart Redman – Consultant Radiologist: “The Nuclear Medicine Department has two gamma cameras and performs around 4,500 examinations a year. We are replacing the older gamma camera with a VERITON-CT system, as we feel this is the best on the market. We want to use the increased quality of imaging and speed of scanning to improve our clinical outcomes and patient experience.”
Dr. Martyn Evans – Consultant Medical Physicist: “The VERITON-CT Solid State Gamma Camera has an intelligent novel design which permits focused collimation. The use of CZT crystal detectors means the system sensitivity is a lot higher than existing PMT designs, but also has the major advantage of better energy resolution which result in improved contrast and resolution. The higher sensitivity facilitates much faster scans, improving patient experience and allowing an increased patient throughput. The team recognizes the real potential the VERITON-CT has over other systems and looks forward to working with Spectrum Dynamics to develop new and exciting imaging technology.
Dr. David Little – Clinical Lead for Nuclear Medicine: “The VERITON-CT is a huge leap forward for nuclear medicine both in terms of the digital CZT detectors and the 360-degree capability. We’re excited by the possibility of increased sensitivity, improved workflow and reduced doses, as well as the potential of new applications of dynamic 3D SPECT. We are thrilled that our patients in Bath will be the first in the UK to benefit from this exciting new technology.
