GEHC 860 Technology Image 1 v1

Optimized for everyday imaging

All our new 800 Series SPECT/CT systems build on the success of the 600 Series with a collection of SPECT technology enhancements that add to the value of nuclear medicine. In addition to the all-new SmartConsole, these enhancements include a new LEHRS (Low Energy High Resolution and Sensitivity) collimator, which can be combined with either SPECT Step & Shoot Continuous scanning mode or our Planar Clarity 2D processing to increase sensitivity and enable a reduction of scan times or injected dose1. It’s called SwiftScan Planar and SwiftScan SPECT. NM/CT 860 also includes the Elite NXT detectors, designed to address some of nuclear medicine’s biggest challenges.

We paired these great SPECT enhancements with our Revolution™ ACTs CT system. It’s an eight-slice CT system with fine resolution and contrast, as well as IQ Enhance, a reconstruction technology that makes it possible to scan at a faster helical pitch to cover more anatomy at similar image quality. This combination of imaging technologies allows you to provide both advanced SPECT/CT exams and the most common overflow standalone CT exams.
All without adding duplicate capabilities to your asset mix.
GEHC 860 Capability Image 1 v1

The right mix of SPECT and CT capability

Until now, many advanced hybrid and quantitative protocols have been limited to research institutions with the extra resources needed to provide complex protocols. Through SmartConsole and Xeleris™, NM/CT 860 makes these protocols available in routine settings by reducing the resources needed to perform them.

A simpler way to bring everything together

Q.Volumetrix MI is an Xeleris 4 DR application that integrates SUV measurements directly into the volume viewer. It allows you to see both the image and the SUV simultaneously instead of having to switch back and forth between two separate applications.
Then, with SmartConsole, your quantitative SPECT/CT studies are automatically transferred directly to the PACS or other pre-defined DICOM destination. These resource-saving improvements allow you to expand your services without breaking your schedule.

Stay on top of the latest trends in imaging

Grow your referral volume by offering therapy and surgical planning procedures.

A CT that stands out when it stands alone

Revolution ACTs gives you the thin-slice performance you need for all of your SPECT/CT exams and standalone CT capability for the most common overflow CT studies. Not only that, but you get the added time savings of being able to acquire a diagnostic CT exam at the same time as a SPECT/CT exam, which helps improve the patient experience. In addition, Revolution ACTs has the dose reduction technology referring physicians expect with every exam.

A system that’s ready for the future when you are

NM/CT 860 shares the same modular design as the rest of the 800 Series family of nuclear medicine systems. They all share a common user interface and collimators, which makes it easier both operationally and financially to upgrade to another 800 Series system or to add another system to your overall asset mix. Its modular design also means you have the option to purchase SPECT advancements like SwiftScan Planar and SwiftScan SPECT now, or in the future.

Inform your decisions with measurable results

The Xeleris workstation is our Nuclear Medicine, PET, NM/CT and PET/CT processing, analysis and review system. It’s designed to leverage the latest in SPECT quantitative applications for routine clinical use, accelerate workflow and improve diagnostic confidence. It also opens the door to the new era of digital healthcare delivery through its potential to access the GE Health Cloud and with advanced applications to help solve some of the most complex clinical presentations.
GEHC 860 Summary Image 1 v1

A SPECT/CT system for true discovery

Molecular imaging is unlike any other imaging technology because it enables the search for true discovery. It’s the type of discovery that reveals a new way to understand something hidden deep within us. It’s what inspires confidence in the accuracy of what you see and in your ability to find disease sooner. It’s this diagnostic confidence that strengthens the value of nuclear medicine throughout the healthcare community.

Continuing to grow the clinical value of SPECT/CT technology takes as much of a commitment from the people who use it as it does from the people who make it. You, like us, are committed to making true discovery even more accessible to the patients you serve. It’s why we partnered with you to better understand what your financial and operational challenges might be. It’s also why we created NM/CT 860 to help you overcome those challenges, so you can continue to pursue true discovery.
  • 1 Compared to LEHR collimator, with Step & Shoot scan mode (for SPECT) / without Clarity 2D (for Planar). As demonstrated in phantom testing using a bone scan protocol, Evolution processing (for SPECT), and a model observer. Because model observer results may not always match those from a human reader, the actual time/dose reduction depends on the clinical task, patient size, anatomical location and clinical practice. A radiologist should determine the appropriate scan time/dose for the particular clinical task.
  • 2 In clinical practice, Evolution options2a (Evolution for Bone, Evolution for Cardiac, Evolution for Bone Planar) and Evolution Toolkit2b are recommended for use following consultation of a Nuclear Medicine physician, physicist and/or application specialist to determine the appropriate dose or scan time reduction to obtain diagnostic image quality for a particular clinical task, depending on the protocol adopted by the clinical site.
  • 2a Evolution Options - Evolution claims are supported by simulation of count statistics using default factory protocols and imaging of 99mTc based radiotracers with LEHR collimator on anthropomorphic phantom or realistic NCAT – SIMSET phantom followed by quantitative and qualitative images comparison.
  • 2b Evolution Toolkit - Evolution Toolkit claims are supported by simulation of full count statistics using lesion simulation phantom images based on various radiotracers and collimators and by   showing that SPECT image quality reconstructed with Evolution Toolkit provide equivalent clinical information but have better signal-to-noise, contrast, and lesion resolution compared to the   images reconstructed with FBP / OSEM.
  • 3 As demonstrated in phantom testing using a model observer. For SPECT, compared to using the LEHR Collimator and a SPECT Step & Shoot acquisition. For Planar, compared to using LEHR without Clarity 2D.
  • 4 In clinical practice, the use of ASiR or VISR 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.
