Spectrum Dynamics is spearheading the transformation of Nuclear Medicine from analog to digital technology, enabling clinicians to provide superior healthcare services with improved image quality and efficiency at lower doses. Spectrum continuously drives innovation based on digital technology features to increase SPECT diagnostic value.

D-SPECT®: The world's first digital cardiac SPECT system based on Broadview Technology: swiveling CZT digital detectors. It is the platform for advanced applications such as TruCorr Attenuation Correction, TruFlow 3D dynamic SPECT imaging for Myocardial Flow Reserve (MFR) analysis, Simultaneous Dual Isotope Imaging (SDI).

TruCorr: a deep learning application to generate attenuation corrected myocardial perfusion images. There is no need for the patient to undergo an additional CT transmission scan, as TruCorr utilizes the SPECT scan emission data. The result is high-quality images for diagnostic accuracy and confidence.

VERITON-CT®: The world's first 360°CZT-based, ring-shaped gantry design digital SPECT/CT, configurable with high-resolution 16 or 64-slice CT. Its 80cm wide bore accommodates patients of all sizes. VERITON features TruFlow 3D dynamic SPECT/CT imaging for myocardial flow, bone scan, and renal studies. Unique and advanced reconstruction algorithms ensure the highest image quality with quantitation-ready images.

  • Centers across the world improve the accuracy, ease of myocardial perfusion imaging with digital SPECT and Deep Learning technologies
    Spectrum Dynamics installs the cutting-edge methodology for attenuation correction for its D-SPECT® Series digital camera that eliminates need for CT transmission scan and multiple-positions scans.

    Spectrum Dynamics today announced the worldwide deployment of its TruCorr Attenuation Correction software across the United States, Europe, and Asia. The Deep Learning-based application, which works on Spectrum Dynamics’ D-SPECT® digital cameras, is revolutionary in its ability to generate artifact corrected myocardial perfusion images without requiring additional scanning sessions for the patient.

    Studies have shown that attenuation correction of SPECT images improves image quality and increases the accuracy of image interpretation. Until now, the most common way to visually address attenuation artifacts has been to scan the patient twice, using different positions. For others, an alternative option to implement correction has been to obtain a corresponding computed tomography (CT) transmission scan.

    “Our initial experience with TruCorr attenuation correction has been encouraging”, said Marvin W. Kronenberg, M.D., Director Heart Station and Nuclear Cardiology, Vanderbilt Heart and Vascular Institute. “We have obtained marked improvement in image quality compared to uncorrected images.”

    TruCorr performs attenuation correction using a Deep Learning approach with data from the patient’s SPECT scan. The application eliminates the need to scan the patient in two different positions, such as upright and supine or prone. TruCorr benefits sites where there is no CT scanner available. It can also free up CT scanners and staff. TruCorr averts the need for the patient to incur additional radiation dose and longer or multiple appointments.

    “Many of Spectrum’s unique design ideas have proven key in the development and optimization of digital SPECT cameras and have become industry standards in SPECT imaging,” said Spectrum Dynamics’ CEO, Gilad Yoeli. “It is our fierce spirit of innovation and agility that drives us to develop solutions that increase diagnostic confidence, increase scanner efficiency and throughput, and lower dose to the patient.”

  • D-SPECT Digital Cardiac SPECT
    World first digital cardiac system, D-SPECT® CARDIO...

  • Spectrum Dynamics launched the world's first digital cardiac dedicated SPECT system – the D-SPECT® system – in 2007.

    The D-SPECT employs swiveling digital detectors made of Cadmium Zinc Telluride (CZT), along with ingenious hardware design, proprietary software, and algorithms to enable imaging of cardiac patients at unprecedented speed, at a low radiation dose, and with superior image quality. The D-SPECT is the platform for advanced clinical applications such as Dual Isotope Imaging, TruFlow 3D Dynamic SPECT Imaging for myocardial blood flow analysis.

    TruCorr Artificial Intelligence (IA) based software generates attenuation corrected myocardial perfusion images acquired with the Spectrum Dynamics D-SPECT cardiac scanner. TruCorr uses emission data to correct for attenuation. It does not require a transmission scan acquisition, thus preventing additional radiation to the patient.

    World first 360° CZT ring-shaped gantry digital SPECT-CT, VERITON-CT®...

  • Spectrum has continuously expanded its offerings, scanner features, and functionalities to address the SPECT imaging limitations of older technology. In 2018, the company introduced the revolutionary CZT-based, 360° detector design VERITON-CT®, with a full diagnostic, high-resolution 64-slice CT — the industry's most advanced hybrid nuclear camera. VERITON-CT innovations provide an 8 to 15 times improvement in sensitivity compared to a NaI conventional camera. The scanner was designed with the patient's comfort in mind. The axial field of view, 32cm, ensures organs such as lungs are imaged in a one-bed position scan. Its 80cm bore, for both SPECT and CT accommodates patients of all sizes. Thanks to the company's foresight and agility, the VERITON-CT anticipates future needs with advanced diagnostic capabilities that early adopters and researchers can deploy, such as dynamic imaging. TruFlow or 4D SPECT/CT imaging for critical applications: myocardial blood flow, 3-phase bone scan, and renogram. Unique and advanced reconstruction algorithms are included in VERITON's TruView console to ensure the highest image quality and quantitation-ready images are available for complete and comprehensive diagnosis.

  • TruCorr

    For high quality SPECT, attenuation correction is essential.Spectrum Dynamics has developed a new methodology for attenuation correction for its D-SPECT® Series camera. TruCorr uses Deep Learning to generate attenuation corrected myocardial perfusion images. This new capability for the D-SPECT means improved image quality, seamless integration with existing workflow.

    A patient-centered innovation

    With TruCorr, no additional scanning session is required, reducing imaging time and allowing the patient to avoid an additional radiation dose. Attenuation correction is based on the patient’s SPECT myocardial perfusion emission data. In visual and quantitative analysis, TruCorr images correlated with CT attenuation correct images positively.

    The TruCorr workflow that generates attenuation corrected images can be utilized whether the patient is in a supine or upright position. It is integrated in the TruSPECT Workstation for easy access. Images can be reviewed at any time using the physician’s preferred cardiac analysis software. CZT-based D-SPECT images corrected with TruCorr are set to enhance the value of SPECT in myocardial perfusion imaging conveniently and efficiently for patients and clinicians.
