New CT may assist with earlier modification of patient treatment, allows for lower radiation exposure

Physicians at Holy Cross Hospital can now offer advanced, noninvasive Single Photon Emission Computed Tomography (SPECT) and Computed Tomography (CT) imaging services with the new Symbia Intevo by Siemens. Its innovative technology enables the quantification of molecular processes in the body, may assist with earlier modification of patient treatment, and allows for lower radiation exposure.

Symbia Intevo provides accurate and reproducible quantification in SPECT/CT imaging by ensuring optimization of each element of the imaging chain, which offers many benefits to physicians and their patients. Physicians can now characterize cancer lesions more precisely, which permits better staging and monitoring of disease. This allows for a more accurate assessment of treatment response, facilitating clinical decision-making and potentially minimizing the need for costly follow-up exams.

To address the needs of improving patient safety and increasing efficiency, Symbia Intevo allows for minimal radiation dose exposure while imaging patients faster than ever before. The system also offers exceptional patient comfort with an open design that may help patients feel more comfortable.
