Link Medical Ltd, distributors for the Spectrum Dynamics range of Gamma Cameras, announce that D-Spect Cardio has been installed in the department of Nuclear Cardiology at Glasgow Royal Infirmary.
D-Spect Cardio is equipped with Dynamic Spect Imaging that is capable of performing Coronary Flow Reserve and will perform high resolution MPI images an a fraction of the time compared to conventional technologies.
Dr Craig Paterson, Head of Nuclear Cardiology stated ‘”As one of the country’s busiest Nuclear Cardiology Departments we have greatly benefited from the flexibility that the digital CZT technology in the D-SPECT offers us. In particular, the increased sensitivity of the system has had a major impact on increasing patient throughput in the department allowing us to reduce waiting times and continue to recover from the COVID-19 crisis. We look forward to being able to exploit the opportunities provided by the system’s native planar and dynamic imaging capabilities. We have also found the training and support provided by Spectrum Dynamics to be of the highest standard – especially given the current challenges we are all facing. “
Senior Technologist, Robin Mark McDade also said “Our dedicated Nuclear Cardiology Department will benefit from the decreased acquisition time and increased throughput the D-SPECT offers.
The sitting position maximises patient comfort, reduces the moving and handling burden to our staff and is helping reduce our rescan rate for MPI.We look forward to adding its SPECT coronary flow capabilities to our established regional service.”
