currently have an
IS2 Pulse dual head cardiac SPECT gamma camera system available for
sale or rent.
The system includes IS2 digital detectors with 3/8inch crystals, the
standard Pulse patient table and handset, Pulse HRGP collimators,
acquisition cart with monitor, keyboard and mouse, ECG monitor with
gating facility, a UPS, an optional ADAC Pegasys Blade
The system can be used for static, dynamic and SPECT imaging which can
be either gated or non-gated. The detectors are fixed at 90degrees
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 but Tc99 or Tl201 intrinsic floods
are usually preferred. A similar jig is also provided for COR checks,
the acquisition for which is also provided as a preset protocol.
system we have available was originally manufactured in 2004.
