Digital radiography news New Nuclear Medicine department to provide additional services to local region

Perth Royal Infirmary, part of NHS Tayside, has recently opened its new state-of-the-art Nuclear Medicine department. The new facility includes a Symbia® T TruePoint SPECT•CT from Siemens Healthcare to give the hospital access to superb molecular imaging and fast acquisition times to assist with achieving efficient clinical workflows.

The Symbia T is a hybrid system combining a dual-detector variable angle gamma camera with a 2-slice CT scanner for rapid, accurate attenuation correction and precise localisation of molecular imaging data. It will be used for a full range of nuclear medicine procedures at Perth Royal Infirmary including orthopaedic and cardiac scans.

“The department is a great addition to Perth Royal Infirmary and we anticipate that this new molecular imaging service will provide a greater equity of access in Tayside and eventually reduce patient waiting times,” said Dr. Norman Kennedy, Consultant Physicist in Nuclear Medicine at Perth Royal Infirmary.

“The Symbia T is the first dual-detector gamma camera on the site giving the hospital greater flexibility to conduct a full gambit of nuclear medicine studies and improve its service to the local community,” said Scott Taylor, Product and Applications Specialist at Siemens Healthcare. “With fast image acquisition and ability to deal with bariatric patients, the SPECT•CT is a valuable new tool for clinicians.”
