UltraSPECT recommends alternative protocols for dose-reduction
UltraSPECT, based in Haifa, Israel, has issued three different dose-reduction protocol recommendations for using its image reconstruction products--Xpress.Cardiac and Xpress3.

According to the company, Xpress.Cardiac and Xpress3 allow lower dose imaging protocols with no compromise in imaging and support most existing camera hardware and workstation versions.

UltraSPECT offers one-day rest/stress protocol with the Xpress.Cardiac, with scan times as defined by the American Society of Nuclear Cardiology (ASNC) recommendations, but with injected doses that are approximately half the doses specified by ASNC. Ultraspect also offers two different protocols with the Xpress3.Cardiac for single day rest/stress protocol or the dual-isotope single-day protocol.
