First ECAT Scintron Installed in Texas
Date:10/19/2013

HOUSTON, Oct. 18, 2013 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Nuclear Imaging Services, LLC (NIS) has completed the first US-based ECAT Scintron installation into an outpatient cardiology facility with tremendous results. Gulf Coast Cardiology Group, P.L.L.C in Port Arthur, Texas is the first to upgrade its Siemens ECAT system to Medical Imaging Electronics' (MiE) ECAT Scintron.

The scan times for the rest and stress cardiac PET imaging protocol reduced from approximately 45 minutes to just over 20 minutes per patient. The transfer and processing times were eliminated thereby creating more productivity within the department while maximizing the comfort of the patient. Reducing the amount of time the patient remained under the camera not only improved efficiency but also image quality.

Elated with the system upgrade, Gulf Coast Cardiology Group Chief Physician Dr. Pradip J. Morbia remarked, "The Scintron has dramatically raised our level of patient care. Its efficiency allows my clinic to provide maximum patient care with reduced scan times and superior image quality." 

Gulf Coast Cardiology Group PET Technologist Deena Varnado added, "The efficiency of the Scintron is great for our patients!  It allows them to be scheduled on a timelier basis since we can now increase our daily patient volume. Our patients can also better tolerate the time they have to lay flat on the table due to the time being cut down to perform the scan."

The ECAT Scintron is the only upgrade path to the Siemens ECAT 47, ECAT HR+, and ECAT Accel PET systems. This upgrade eliminates the need for the ACSII along with the SUN workstation. Both units are replaced with new PC technology that will provide for faster scan times, improved reliability, and longevity in the ECAT family of dedicated PET systems. Hardware and software configurations include whole body, gating and list mode data acquisi
