What experts say
" With xSPECT Bone, our reports have a higher level of information that can be acted on. This helps us better communicate with our referrers, so they can better manage their patients."
In August 2015, Garran Medical Imaging (GMI) in Canberra, Australia, initiated a study to prospectively evaluate their first 200 xSPECT Bone cases. As part of the study, GMI performed sequential reporting of SPECT/CT followed by xSPECT/CT. Differences between the initial SPECT/CT and the final report (after xSPECT/CT reconstruction) were documented and analyzed.
The findings, published in European Journal of Hybrid Imaging (March 2018), showed that xSPECT Bone imaging provided more diagnostic information in 71% of scans; and when compared to conventional SPECT/CT, the diagnosis was changed in 20% of cases.
