Siemens Healthineers splashed an FDA-approved SPECT/CT system June 12 at the 2022 annual meeting of the Society of Nuclear Medicine & Nuclear Imaging in Vancouver, B.C.
Siemens says the scanner, called Symbia Pro.specta, also has won CE mark approval, allowing the company to market the model in Europe.
The OEM says the technology is configurable for tailored image acquisition, reconstruction and post-processing in cardiology, neurology, oncology, orthopedics and other specialties.
The model also can be used for CT-only or SPECT-only imaging.
Symbia Pro.specta “features a minimum of 32 and a maximum of 64 CT slices, and it comes standard with a tin filter and CT iterative reconstruction for ultra-low patient and room dose,” the company adds in its SNMMI news release.
