High-resolution, direct conversion, solid-state NM detector technology including:
Miniature and high performance CZT semiconductor sensors.
Dual head configuration has aligned heads so that images can be combined to potentially enable improved lesion detection.
Single calibration map for all isotopes.
Registered collimator (collimator holes aligned to the CZT pixels).
Detector and collimator stationary during scan.
Option to acquire and reframe time sliced images.
Improved energy resolution and scatter rejection compared to standard NaI detectors. Direct conversion eliminates the need for PMTs and linearity calibrations.
GE CZT detectors provide pre-corrected Sensitivity Uniformity providing uniform image quality.
Operator efficiency: User-friendly, intuitive control commands provide operational simplicity and can facilitate rapid setup.
The Discovery NM 750b requires only a short periodic calibration procedure.
Daily quality control (DQC) can be completed in 10 min.
No collimator exchange between scans or calibration
One button pre-programmed express setups:
-CC mode: Detectors at 0°
-MLO mode: Detectors at ±45°
-LAT mode: Detectors at ±90°
Operator workflow: The NM750b offers tools that can help streamlined workflow and enable improved productivity. The workflow begins with patient selection from the work list, followed by a fast patient scan setup and overall image acquisition time. Image processing allows easy review and data transfer to PACS.
Patient comfort: Only minor immobilization pressure is required for the scan (0-15lbs). Your patient can sit or stand during the scan of the breast or other organs.
Minimal “dead” edges of the detectors allow imaging close to the chest wall.
Potential dose regime options can enable substantial reduction of administered dose as compared to breast imaging with traditional gamma cameras.
Friendly design with stationary detectors designed to help increase patient acceptance and accommodate patients with claustrophobia.
Reliability and Serviceability: The various service benefits provided with the Discovery NM 750b include: iLinq* Single Energy and Uniformity Maps–minimize calibration time to 30min
