Kromek (AIM: KMK), a leading developer of radiation and bio-detection technology solutions for the advanced imaging and CBRN detection segments, is pleased to announce that one of its key customers, Spectrum Dynamics Medical (“Spectrum Dynamics”), has introduced the latest addition to its next generation digital SPECT/CT imaging portfolio, the VERITON-CT 300, for higher energy imaging, using Kromek’s digital detectors.
Based on Spectrum Dynamics’ digital SPECT/CT platform, the VERITON-CT 300 Series’ detector technology provides the benefits of increased sensitivity and throughput for Nuclear Medicine clinical applications capable of using imaging utilising up to 300 keV high-energy isotopes. This allows for greater procedure efficiency in most exam types, as well as simultaneous acquisition of multi-energy peak isotopes commonly used in theranostic imaging applications.
A SPECT scan (single-photon emission computed tomography) is the technique of using nuclear medicine tomographic imaging techniques with gamma rays to provide detailed 3D functional images of the body. The SPECT/CT scanner combines the framework of the CT anatomic scan with the functional information provided by nuclear medicine imaging (SPECT scan). The images from each scan are then fused together providing highly accurate anatomical detail in 3D, allowing medical specialists to more accurately pinpoint the exact location of any abnormality.

Cadmium zinc telluride (“CZT”) is transforming the detector technology used in medical imaging, leading to significantly shortened exam scan times, lower radiation dose to the patient, improved image quality and quantitative accuracy without compromise. Kromek’s high-performance digital detectors, combined with Spectrum’s 360-degree, wide-bore SPECT/CT scanner and its advanced image reconstruction algorithms, increase the energy range up to 300 keV to support the throughput demand of current and new emerging nuclear medicine clinical applications that set a new standard in patient care.
The 300 Series digital detector technology sets new standards with a 2-4 times improvement in energy range, system sensitivity, and energy resolution. These improvements will further shorten the scan times associated with current analogue or state-of-the-art digital technology. The VERITON-CT Series also eliminates the need for collimator replacement further streamlining and simplifying workflow for various procedure types.
