GE Healthcare’s Discovery NM630, an upgradable SPECT technology, which has a 28-inch bore and a table capable of handling patients up to 500 pounds

The Elite NXT has an '[u]ltra-thin design and auto-body contouring [to] minimize the distance between the patient and the detectors,” the Waukesha, Wis.-based company said.

The Discovery NM630 can be upgraded on location to a Discovery NM/CT 670 by adding CT capabilities that can expand services to hybrid imaging. According to GE, shorter acquisition times and dose reduction capabilities in the new SPECT system are possible only when used in combination with the Xeleris 3 processing and review workstation.
