Dual-Modality Imaging Systems Enhance Productivity and Workflow
Reading Time: 2 minutes read
Having two diagnostic technologies in a single system can generate cost-savings in several ways.
Today, success in healthcare demands delivering better care, for more patients, at a lower cost. That’s a tough challenge. Small wonder that hospitals and imaging centers are looking outside the box for new ways to improve their productivity and outcomes.
One growing trend that has developed in response to this need is the design and adoption of dual-modality systems. The idea is simple: buy a single system and gain two sets of capabilities for one price. Recent years have seen the introduction of systems combining computed tomography (CT) with single-photon emission computed tomography (SPECT) for the assessment of cancer patients. Other dual solutions include a cardiovascular system that integrates CT capabilities with X-ray angiography imaging.
