A gamma camera, also known as a scintillation camera or Anger camera, is a device used to picture radioisotopes releasing gamma radiation, a method known as scintigraphy.
The gamma camera, also known as a scintillation camera or an Anger camera, is an imaging device used to image radioisotopes that generate gamma radiation. Scintigraphy is a technique used to image and study the distribution of gamma-emitting radionuclides medically delivered into the human body.
The detecting medium of a gamma camera has traditionally used a NaI scintillation crystal doped with thallium. Upon the stimulation of its molecules by a charged particle, this crystal can generate light, most notably by a fluorescence process (electron)
The Global Gamma camera Market accounted for $XX Billion in 2022 and is anticipated to reach $XX Billion by 2030, registering a CAGR of XX% from 2023 to 2030.
GE introduces a tiny gamma camera for cardiology applications. A new gamma camera has been introduced to the nuclear medicine community.
The GE Millenium MyoSight made its debut on September 26 during the American Society of Nuclear Cardiology’s annual meeting in Baltimore.
The tiny cardiology system is intended primarily for standalone clinics and other places with limited space. The detectors built within the dual-head, variable-angle camera have a field-of-view of 14.1 x 20.1 inches.
According to the business, the system fits in a 110-square-foot space and the camera can be deployed in two days using standard elevators and doorways.
All supine and prone cardiac procedures, including 180° and 360° SPECT investigations, planar-gated blood pool, and gated SPECT perfusion with attenuation correction, can be performed by Millennium MyoSight.
Detector heads are suspended from gantry arms, creating an open scanning environment. The table can accommodate patients weighing up to 440 pounds.
Millennium MyoSight is based on General Electric’s digital Correlated Signal Enhancement detector technology, which employs square photomultiplier tubes.
According to the business, the peculiar design of the tubes optimises detection of scintillation events, hence increasing picture count rate and uniformity.
Calibration algorithms are used to automatically tune PMTs. By positioning the detectors close to the patient, a 101° detector geometry improves scanning sensitivity.
