SPECT/CT is a well-established imaging modality for investigation of suspicious bone lesions. But even so, additional testing is often required for confirmation of a patient’s situation—restricting everyone’s ability to deliver appropriate and timely care at a lower cost. The high image resolution of xSPECT Bone™ enables you to better localize and characterize disease, potentially reducing the need for alternative exams.
Engineering a better bone scan
xSPECT Bone takes an entirely different approach in the generation of SPECT/CT images. By using the CT as the frame-of-reference for image reconstruction, xSPECT Bone is able to extract a zone map with different tissue segments to better delineate the boundaries of nuclear uptake during SPECT reconstruction. Through the deep integration of SPECT and CT data, xSPECT Bone can help you clearly distinguish disease not easily seen with conventional SPECT.
By boosting the level of clinically relevant information, xSPECT Bone imaging enables you to deliver much more specific and comprehensive reports to your referring physicians—facilitating better communication and more effective decision making.
