New Gamma Camera

New Gamma Camera

Radiology

Today Gerard Sammon, Interim Chief Executive officially opened Dartford and Gravesham NHS Trust brand new state-of-the art hybrid Gamma Camera (SPECT/CT). The Gamma Camera promises to deliver faster and more accurate diagnosis for patients requiring specific orthopaedic, oncology and cardiac imaging. Using the latest technology, it provides clinicians with an enhanced image quality for improvements in disease detection and staging so patients can receive earlier interventions / treatments to provide them with better outcomes.


Not only will patients have a more comfortable experience from the machine - in some cases, they may not require additional diagnostic CT imaging, eliminating the need for multiple tests and changing the way our department works to become even more efficient.


The introduction of this machine shows a significant commitment by the Trust to our Radiology department and to improving patient care and management for those requiring diagnostic imaging.
