Get More from a Scan

The D-SPECT camera, introduced at the June meeting of the Society of Nuclear Medicine, features shorter image capture times, better image quality, and the capability of simultanrous multi-isotope imaging. Among the benefits of using more than one tracer and multiple isotopes are medical diagnostics for several conditions per scan. This will reduce the likelihood of radiation overexposure from repeated scans. (www.sensorsmag.com/0806/RDScan)
