GE wins CZT gamma camera installs

GE Healthcare of Chalfont St. Giles, U.K., has received contracts for four installations of its nuclear cardiology camera based on cadmium zinc telluride (CZT) digital detectors, the company said.

Discovery NM 530c features GE's Alcyone technology, which combines CZT detectors, focused pinhole collimation, stationary data acquisition, and 3D reconstruction. GE debuted the camera in March.

The systems will be installed at Mount Sinai Medical Center in New York City; Ottawa Heart Institute in Ottawa, Canada; University Hospital in Zurich, Switzerland; and Gabriele Monasterio Foundation, CNR, in Pisa, Italy.
