Molecular imaging technology developer Spectrum Dynamics has received a pediatric program contract from the group purchasing organization Vizient. Spectrum will provide its Veriton-CT digital SPECT/CT to Vizient's customer base
Veriton-CT is a 3D digital hybrid SPECT/CT scanner that has a 360° cadmium zinc telluride 12-detector design that automatically moves close to the patient's body and follows its shape. This improves scans because the detectors can get within millimeters of kids' smaller frames.
Veriton-CT is also faster than the traditional analog 180° dual-head gamma camera and delivers a lower injected dose of the radiopharmaceutical, Spectrum said.
