IQ SPECT Technology

One of the key trends in nuclear medicine has been the ever-increasing demand for faster myocardial perfusion imaging. Historically, image quality has been limited by the number of detected photons. Routine cardiac studies can take up to 20 minutes, limiting the number of patient scans. To achieve the desired image quality, patients are often injected with high doses that increase radiation exposure. Siemens Healthineers IQ•SPECT is the only technology today that performs ultra-fast cardiac imaging with a general purpose camera. Its unique collimator design, cardio-centric image acquisition and advanced reconstruction technology acquires four-times more counts than conventional methods for high quality images independent of age, body shape or size. With IQ•SPECT, physicians can perform a myocardial perfusion imaging study in approximately 4 minutes using the standard dose, 8 minutes using half the standard dose or 16 minutes using one-quarter of the standard dose. With its SMARTZOOM collimators, modified cardio-centric acquisition and special reconstruction methods, IQ•SPECT is the solution for fast cardiac imaging using half the dose with twice the speed.

As a recognized worldwide leader in CVD testing, Siemens Healthineers Diagnostics provides a comprehensive and expanding menu of cardiac biomarkers across a broad spectrum of instrument solutions that help manage patients throughout the continuum of cardiovascular disease.

High-Sensitivity Troponin I on the ADVIA Centaur® XP/XPT immunoassay systems is the latest addition to Siemens Healthineers comprehensive cardiac menu to assist clinicians with the diagnosis and treatment of chest pain patients. Designed to aid in diagnosing acute myocardial infarctions (AMI) through the quantitative measurement of cardiac troponin I in serum or plasma, high-sensitivity troponin I plays a critical role in the timely diagnosis of AMI, or heart attacks.

The ADVIA Centaur® High-Sensitivity Troponin I (TNIH) assay is a true high-sensitivity assay.

  • Offers improved cardiac patient care with a high-sensitivity troponin assay that meets current European Society of Cardiology clinical guidelines
  • Provides fast, accurate, and actionable test results that allow clinicians to confidently rule in/rule out a myocardial infarction when triaging patients with chest pain
  • Ensures reliable results from a proven, trusted technology coupled with three new monoclonal antibodies

Compared to traditional troponin assays, the Siemens Healthineers ADVIA Centaur TNIH assay is able to detect lower levels of troponin and smaller changes to a patient’s troponin levels, which may be an early indication of AMI. This design affords clinicians greater confidence in patient results at the low end of the assay range by delivering precision that provides the ability to measure slight, yet critical, changes between serial troponin I values.

Precision at the low end is important to minimize analytic variation that could confuse a clinician’s assessment of a clinically significant change. With this data in hand, clinicians have the ability to more quickly diagnose and treat patients with suspected AMI, in some cases in as little as one to three hours.

Our nuclear cardiology solutions provide cardiologists with tools that enable the detection of early as well as advanced coronary artery disease, including delineation of myocardial infarction and assessment of left ventricular function and wall motion.

IQ SPECT Technology

One of the key trends in nuclear medicine has been the ever-increasing demand for faster myocardial perfusion imaging. Historically, image quality has been limited by the number of detected photons. Routine cardiac studies can take up to 20 minutes, limiting the number of patient scans. To achieve the desired image quality, patients are often injected with high doses that increase radiation exposure. Siemens Healthineers IQ•SPECT is the only technology today that performs ultra-fast cardiac imaging with a general purpose camera. Its unique collimator design, cardio-centric image acquisition and advanced reconstruction technology acquires four-times more counts than conventional methods for high quality images independent of age, body shape or size. With IQ•SPECT, physicians can perform a myocardial perfusion imaging study in approximately 4 minutes using the standard dose, 8 minutes using half the standard dose or 16 minutes using one-quarter of the standard dose. With its SMARTZOOM collimators, modified cardio-centric acquisition and special reconstruction methods, IQ•SPECT is the solution for fast cardiac imaging using half the dose with twice the speed.
