T-Quest Gamma Camera

Specifically designed for optimal thyroid imaging, the T-Quest mobile gamma camera is the newest nuclear imaging system from MEDX Inc, based in Arlington Heights, Ill. Using the technology, physicians can perform thyroid and other small organ studies, and nuclear departments can potentially increase profitability and streamline operations by permitting the high-end gamma camera to acquire high-revenue studies continuously. It works in conjunction with the company’s NuQuest acquisition and processing computer, offering a comprehensive, stand-alone system. This software comes with customizable thyroid and parathyroid, in addition to other nuclear image processing tools.

The Visible Difference

The T-Quest combines high-quality imaging capabilities with the freedom to move, resulting in increased operating efficiency. Its compact footprint necessitates less than 8 square feet of floor space, and it allows for easy transportation of patients through narrow doorways. Additionally, its open, unobtrusive design promotes comfort for claustrophobic patients. The technology, which includes a specialized, lightweight pinhole collimator, minimizes the mm/pixel ratio and focal distance and therefore maximizes image resolution and image quality. Furthermore, it easily accommodates nearly any patient position.
