EQUINE SCINTIGRAPHY

An ingenious combination of mechanics, electronics and special software algorithms allows unique scanning on standing horses. The easy to use, fully automatic and real time motion correction stands for accurate, effective and fast studies in every conditions.

MOTION CORRECTION & NOISE REDUCTION

  • significant quality improved diagnostic
  • shortened acquisition time
  • high quality images even with many patient movements
  • no need of repeating acquisition caused by patient movements
  • easy to use software
  • improved signal-to-noise ratio
  • sharper contours for precise diagnostic

SYSTEM SPECIFICATIONS

  • largest FOV currently available
  • new NaI(Tl) scintillation crystal
  • quick and easy positioning through floating gantry
  • free movements on four axis
  • compact and robust system
  • no pendulum detector – safe for patient, user and acquisition
  • quiet system for smooth running
  • integrated acquisition and processing system for sources of error minimization
  • optional image fusion software

Motion Correction on the Fly

ParalyzerPLUS

To minimize motion artifacts for the standing horse, MiE has developed the world’s first real time motion correction

Beside the motion correction during acquisition the ParalyzerPLUS improves the signal to noise ratio with standardized parameters. This will display sharper contours and makes a precise diagnosis possible without losing counts.

The rigid registration software allows shorter image acquisition times and improved diagnostic quality.

Using the Paralyzer software offers the possibility to elimate the need to repeat acquisitions.

  •  the entire scanning process is faster
  • no post processing is needed for motion correction
  • allowing to increase patient throughput
  • reduce staff radiation dose per examination

Image Fusion

MiE’s Image Fusion for scintigraphy and x-ray images enhances the diagnostic possibilities.

The program evaluates the different structures, resolution, acquisition geometries and regions. Rotation, translation (shift) and scaling will be adjusted.

The process operates multi modal and automatic. The fusion allows the combined usage of the morphologic information of the x-ray and the functional information of the scintigraphy in one image.
