Overview

Coverage, confidence and productivity with extended CT capability.

Built on GE’s pioneering legacy in molecular imaging, the Discovery NM/CT 670 leverages our decades of imaging excellence and advanced SPECT and CT technologies. The automated fusion from SPECT and CT images from the Discovery NM/CT 670 gives you the clarity to make a diagnosis that you can rely on.

  • IQE enables faster anatomical coverage using faster pitch helical scanning at similar artifact index level1
  • Absolute quantitation of tracer uptake with Q.Metrix
  • A CT ready for stand-alone use when routine workflow turns into overflow
  • Special features to improve a patient’s ease and comfort

1. Image Quality as defined by an Artifact Index in Phantom testing.

SPECT Technology

Balance dose and time for singular results.

Enhance your practice, clinic or hospital with the Nuclear Medicine 600 Series. Advanced Elite NXT detector technology, including ultra-short PMTs and miniaturized electronics, yields superb energy resolution, outstanding SPECT resolution and very high count rate for image clarity you can see. An Ultra-Thin Pressure Sensitive Device and automated body contouring helps leverage this high resolution by imaging as close to the patient as possible. Powerful SPECT algorithms allow you to cut dose or acquisition time in half without sacrificing image quality.

With the high image quality, quantitation and lower injected dose capabilities of GE’s NM600 Series, you can inspire confidence in patients and referring physicians with information that is clear and quantified.

The ability to enhance image resolution, or to reduce time or dose.

Exclusive Evolution Technology changes the relationship between time, dosage and image quality by allowing you to reduce time or injected patient dose up to 50 percent in most scanning procedures while maintaining excellent image quality.

SPECT/CT Technology

See each patient in a new light.

Combine the functional and the anatomical with multi-slice SPECT/CT technology, and gain a closer look at your patients.
Innovative hybrid technology seamlessly integrates the functional images of advanced SPECT with the precise anatomical detail of multi-slice high-resolution CT.

This coupling of technologies delivers a new dimension of image quality, application possibilities and versatility — so you can explore more than you ever thought possible.

Coverage, confidence & productivity with extended CT capability. The clarity to make a first-time diagnosis you can count on.
 
IQE
Cover more anatomy in less time, at the same image quality with IQE (image quality enhance)1

ASiR*
The Discovery NM/CT 670 is designed for low dose with ASiR (adaptive statistical iterative reconstruction) inside.2

OptiDose
The Discovery NM/CT 670 combines ASiR with our proven OptiDose* technologies to deliver dose reduction at the source.

Dose check
Before the scan starts, Dose check tools notify and alert the operator whether the estimated dose index is above user-defined notification values.

1. Image Quality as defined by an Artifact Index in phantom testing.

2. In clinical practice, the use of ASiR may reduce CT patient dose depending on the clinical task, patient size, anatomical location and clinical practice. A consultation with a radiologist and a physicist should be made to determine the appropriate dose to obtain diagnostic image quality for the particular clinical task.

Helical Artifact Index is defined as: ((SD value at ROI1)2 - (SD value at ROI2)2)1/2. Two helical data sets were acquired to compute a Helical Artifact Index. Both helical acquisitions were acquired using kV:120, Gantry Rotation: 0.8S, Slice Thickness: 1.25mm, SFOV: Large, DFOV: 32cm, Start/End: S200-I370 and reconstructed using 512 matrix. One data set was acquired at 1.75:1 pitch with table speed of 37.5mm per rotation with IQ Enhance ON at 260mA and the other using 0.562:1 pitch with table speed of 11.25mm per rotation with IQ Enhance OFF at 160mA.

mA modulation is designed to optimize the dose for the user prescribed noise index. It’s effect on dose depends on the patient body habitus, and prescribed noise setting.
