SPECT/CT Pre-Clinical Imaging System
Resolution-booster™: the first ground breaking total detection chain design principle
Patented* M3-pinhole™ and Tera-Tomo™ 3D SPECT reconstruction technology
x2 gain in SPECT sensitivity achieve 13.000 cps/MBq
x2 gain in volumetric SPECT resolution
Powerful high sensitivity, high resolution and fully integrated small animal SPECT/CT system for imaging a wide range of animal species; from mice to monkeys
The nanoScan SPECT/CT is a unique, patented multi-modality system that allows 3D functional imaging of SPECT tracers at sub-half-mm resolution level. The integrated, ultra-fast, low-dose and variable FOV micro-CT provides automatically registered anatomical information for fusion and corrections. The nanoScan SPECT/CT system is a high-speed, high resolution device for both focused and whole body imaging of small animals (e.g. mice and rats, ferrets, minipigs, rabbits, and even smaller non-human primates). The preclinical SPECT/CT system supports quantitative dynamic imaging with full list mode acquisition format. Gated possibilities are offered for both modalities.

Summary of Key Benefits
The X-ray CT alone is a powerful whole-body imaging system in its own right. Provides the largest variety of species imaging in industry, including larger animals or a whole body mouse scan in one bed position. Offering a very large detector surface and large bore with helical scanning capability, variable zoom (up to 8) and high power X-ray source (up to 80W).
Tomographic information is ready at the end of scan*: on the fly real time reconstruction is enabled by multi-GPUs (*: for general settings)
Lower X-ray exposure dose to animals and faster data acquisition due to stronger X-ray tube, increased detector area, sensitivity and better filtering
Fully automated calibration processes
Improved safety functions (gantry rotation position is stored, optimized x-ray ramp-up and run-up to ensure prolonged tube lifetime)
