Philips Medical Systems is introducing its new Precedence 64-slice SPECT/CT hybrid-imaging system for cardiac management on a single imaging platform at the American Society of Nuclear Cardiology (ASNC) annual meeting, September 7-9 in Montreal.
   
The Precedence family of hybrid-imaging SPECT/CT is capable of dedicated SPECT and diagnostic CT as well as sophisticated hybrid imaging. The introduction of the 64-slice Precedence advances the capability of the platform by performing uncompromised cardiac imaging on patients who can benefit from the imaging procedure, the company said.
   
The 64-slice SPECT/CT system can produce CT-based attenuation correction and perform advanced cardiac CT procedures such as calcium scoring and CTA in one episode of care. It also can produce SPECT myocardial perfusion imaging in half the time of conventional scanners.
   
Philips will celebrate its thousandth installation of the CardioMD gamma camera and data validating the benefits of computed tomography (CT) angiography at the conference.
