Siemens ECAT Accel

Introduced by Siemens in 2002, the ECAT Accel shifted from Bismuth Germanate (BGO) to Lutetium Oxyorthosilicate (LSO) detectors to introduce an upgrade in image clarity and quality. This unit is refurbished by Nuclear Imaging Services with Medical Imaging Electronics’s ECAT Scintron. The new PC-based technology of the ECAT Scintron replaces the Siemens ECAT outdated ACSII and SUN workstation units that generates faster scan times, improved reliability and longevity.
