currently has a couple of IS2 Pulse dual head cardiac SPECT gamma camera systems available for
sale or rent. The systems have just been removed from a UK hospital (March 2019) and are
available for immediate installation.
The system includes IS2 digital detectors with 3/8inch crystals, the
standard Pulse patient table which can be raised to aid patients who have
difficulties getting onto the bed.
The camera can be supplied with either a Pegasys Blade 150 processing station
or a Philips Jetstream Workstation, alternatively it can be setup to transfer
acquired data direct to any existing workstations using DICOM.
The system can be used for static, dynamic and SPECT imaging which can
be either gated or non-gated. The detectors are fixed at 90 degrees
which is generally considered ideal for cardiac imaging. The photo
above shows a typical Pulse installation with it's acquisition cart to
the right and ECG monitor on the shelf under the bed.
Collimator exchange is manual which is possible due to the relatively
light weight of the collimators. Daily QC is performed by replacing the
collimators with a supplied pair of protective perspex shields and then
mounting an intrinsic point source on a jig which mates with a
receptacle on the patient bed. A preset protocol is then used to
acquire floods from the two detectors sequentially. Alternatively it is
possible to use a Co57 flood source.
Installation is easy and the camera can be run of a standard 13 amp supply.
We are happy to rent the cameras out for 3 months to a year or longer if required.
These cameras are ideal to cover a short term period when a department's main
camera is being replaced.
Typical Short Term Rental Cost (includes installation & maintenance)
3 mnths (£10,000), 6 mnths (£15,000), 12 mnths (£25,000)
