Overview

Bone imaging is one of the most common procedures in Nuclear Medicine. With Evolution for Bone you can reduce your SPECT imaging time without compromising image quality. In fact, you can acquire wholebody SPECT in the same amount of imaging time as planar wholebody bone with only a single SPECT. And you can also more comfortably scan elderly or pediatric patients who have difficulty remaining still for a lengthy exam. If you have a scan affected by conditions such as infiltrated injections or poor patient hydration, Evolution for Bone uses the limited statistics of the compromised study to improve image quality.

Benefits

Evolution for Bone changes the way you image, allowing you to:

  • Enhance image quality and improve resolution on full time full dose SPECT
  • Reduce imaging time by up to 50% while maintaining image quality
  • Reduce injected dose by up to 50% while maintaining image quality
  • Any combination of reduced time and dose equal to 50% reduction in counts
  • Recover compromised studies  
  • Correct image-quality degrading factors

Technology

Evolution for Bone features include:

  • An iterative image reconstruction algorithm replaces traditional filtered back projection
  • 3D models of GE collimators provide accurate collimator-detector response functions for a variety of clinical applications
