New SPECT imager offers cost effective imaging workflow benefits

Siemens Healthcare Deutschland : 16 October, 2007  (New Product)
Siemens Medical Solutions Molecular Imaging Division has introduced the company’s new Symbia E series single photon emission computed tomography (SPECT) imager.
The Symbia E is the newest addition to the Symbia family of SPECT and SPECT-CT (computed tomography) imaging systems. The system provides users with a high-quality SPECT imager that can lead to improved clinical confidence, reliability and versatility.

“As the leader in molecular imaging innovations, Siemens is continually evaluating its product offerings to ensure that we help our global customers deliver the best outcomes while addressing their financial concerns,” said Michael Reitermann, president, Siemens Medical Solutions, Molecular Imaging Division.

The new Symbia E is based on the success of Siemens’ Symbia family of imagers. Based on state-of-the-art Symbia SPECT-CT technology and award winning design, Symbia E uses the industry’s leading gamma camera, the e.cam. There are more than 4,000 e.cams installed in more than 120 countries.

Siemens has redesigned the e.cam structure with an improved chassis and improved electronics. The Symbia E allows providers to work with increased confidence because of the system’s improved image quality and increased reliability. The system is versatile and can be upgraded as a facility’s workload grows.

Siemens has taken the best detector technology that the Symbia family of SPECT and SPECT-CT imagers has to offer and made it available on Symbia E. A new generation of HD detector first introduced with the Symbia TruePoint SPECT-CT imager is also included in the new Symbia E scanner.

Using these new detectors, where Siemens achieved an 85 per cent reduction in wiring and a 75 per cent reduction in components, and Siemens’ own crystal material, the reliability of this new system is significantly increased. Symbia E also imports the clinically validated c.clear attenuation correction, which was developed on the Siemens c.cam dedicated cardiac scanner.

To ensure the highest customer satisfaction and system uptime, the Symbia E is equipped with Siemens’ Remote Services capabilities. The Siemens Remote Services programme enables Siemens to check the system status through full remote access and remote diagnostics.

This level of proactive monitoring and trending of key performance indicators will allow Siemens to service and update the system before small problems turn into big downtime. Symbia E users experience interruption-free imaging while having the support of a network of nearly 1,000 trained field engineers.

The Symbia E offers features to accelerate the clinical workflow in acquisition, processing and reviewing with syngo workflow solutions such as an integrated physician worklist and it provides imaging in half the time for cardiology and oncology patients, when using cardio-Flash and onco-Flash reconstruction software packages.

Users are able to save time with the system’s integrated, simultaneous Quality Control component. Symbia E’s facilities will support a wide range of patients from paediatrics to bariatrics and can also be equipped with special positioning pallets for mammography. The system also sports a tilting detector for optimised planar imaging.

With advanced imaging tools for oncology, cardiology, neurology and general imaging, Symbia E will truly satisfy the needs of an institution of any size, and is able to grow at the same rate as clinical requirements dictate.
