GE debuts StarGuide SPECT/CT system

By staff writers

March 24, 2021 -- GE Healthcare has introduced StarGuide, a new SPECT/CT system that features the company's latest generation of cadmium zinc telluride (CZT) detector technology.

StarGuide is built around 12 of GE's Digital Focus detectors, which scan patients in 3D to provide more details to clinicians, and 360-degree imaging that aims to help advance precision health and support greater theranostic capabilities in nuclear medicine.

GE is touting the versatility of StarGuide's shape-adaptive gantry, which allows clinicians to narrow their fields of view to focus on specific body parts, including the heart and brain, to generate images with greater detail that is more difficult to attain on conventional systems. The technology allows users to redefine how bone and cardiac assessments are performed and offers the ability to scan multiple isotopes to enable simultaneous imaging in a single session.

Additionally, StarGuide scans the patient's body with Optical Scout to automatically position the table and detectors for close, contactless scanning of the patient. This results in high-resolution images for clinicians and minimizes the amount of time a patient must be on a table, according to the company.

The first global site for the StarGuide SPECT/CT system is at Hospital of Orleans, France.
