Nuclear medicine is a medical specialty that uses radioactive tracers (radiopharmaceuticals) to assess bodily functions and diagnose and treat disease. The most widely used field in nuclear medicine is cardiac SPECT imaging that provides the information to diagnose the prognosis of coronary artery disease and heart muscle damage following an infarction.The RoboSPECT system is designed and developed for dedicated cardiac SPECT imaging.
The RoboSPECT system uses three swivel motors delivering the robotic movements and providing the circular and noncircular SPECT movement. This design has some advantages including decreasing patient-to-detector distance during scan, open gantry design to avoid intimidating patients, and increasing the durability due to use of rotational arm instead of linear movement. The system has Iran MOH production license.
