NM/CT 870 DR
All our new 800 Series SPECT/CT systems build on the success of the 600 Series with a collection of SPECT technology
enhancements that add to the value of nuclear medicine. In addition to the all-new SmartConsole, these enhancements
include a new LEHRS (Low Energy High Resolution and Sensitivity) collimator, which can be combined with either
SPECT Step & Shoot Continuous scanning mode or our Planar Clarity 2D processing to increase sensitivity and enable
a reduction of scan times or injected dose1. It’s called SwiftScan Planar and SwiftScan SPECT.
NM/CT 870 DR includes our Elite NXT NM detectors, designed to address some of nuclear medicine’s biggest challenges. It
also includes a 16-slice CT system with IQ Enhancement technology that enables helical coverage speed equivalent to that of
a CT scanner at the same table speed2 with a 50-slice wider detector. Not only does this CT technology add clinical value to
SPECT images, it can function as an additional standalone CT. These improvements to both SPECT and CT technology are the
foundation for quantitative results. Results that are made even more valuable with the advanced applications included with
the Xeleris™ workstation and the new SmartConsole.

A fully digital vision for nuclear medicine
Introducing SmartConsole. It’s an all-new productivity hub for hybrid imaging. By automating SPECT/CT reconstruction,
SmartConsole simplifies the workflow for complex hybrid and quantitative protocols and allows technologists to review results
directly at the scanner console. It also allows physicians to review scans remotely from their own mobile devices. They can modify
processing settings and initiate study processing anytime, anywhere across a LAN or a WAN*. That means better collaboration
during scans and better accessibility for reviewing scans once complete.
*Minimum hardware and software requirements apply.

more, you have the option to purchase SPECT advancements like SwiftScan Planar and SwiftScan SPECT now, or in the future. The
same goes for your CT with the ability to add features like ASiR™ at a later date, when it best suits your practical application. This
allows you to acquire the system that fits your needs today knowing that we can help you easily and cost-effectively upgrade your
capital investment if your practice requires it.
A system that’s ready for the future when you are
Cost-effective access to future innovation
Pursue improved clinical, operational and economic outcomes with a system ready to leverage advancements in digital solutions
Digital-detection-ready platform secures your investment with an easy upgrade path to NM/CT 870 CZT to deliver a whole new level of capability and performance with CZT technology
Modular system design allows you to upgrade your system without having to do a complete system swap
NM/CT 870 DR was designed to help you spend more time with your patients. An ergonomic cart streamlines collimator exchanges
between exams. Scan ranges are easy to set with an interactive bedside ruler and positioning lights. And the Ignite user interface
allows you to pre-program three-step protocols, so you can select the patient, study and image processing in a matter of seconds.
Additionally, SmartConsole allows automated SPECT and SPECT/CT processing for physicians to review scans and define
parameters remotely from their mobile devices, instead of having to go to a dedicated workstation. The time saved with this
simple change helps make it possible to complete exams in predictable time slots.

To lead clinical discovery with hybrid imaging, you need quantitation. It’s what makes it possible to not only find disease, but to
follow its response to treatment over time. It helped establish PET/CT as a valuable clinical tool. Now, with recent advancements
to technology, consistent and accurate quantitation is possible with SPECT/CT.
Quantitative SPECT/CT for every patient, every day
Guide therapy planning decisions with quantitative disease state and treatment response assessments
Grow patient volumes with referring physicians that value accurate, reproducible results and the diagnostic confidence you deliver
Built for quantitation
The Xeleris workstation is our Nuclear Medicine, PET, NM/CT and PET/CT processing, analysis and review system. It’s designed
to leverage the latest in SPECT quantitative applications for routine clinical use, accelerate workflow and improve diagnostic
confidence. It also opens the door to the new era of digital healthcare delivery through its potential to access the GE Health Cloud
and with advanced applications to help solve some of the most complex clinical presentations.
Inform your decisions with measurable results
Molecular imaging is more than a tool for seeing within the human body. It allows the search for something greater, the search for
a deeply hidden truth known as a true discovery. It’s the kind of discovery that is reproducible evidence of what is seen and often
not seen. This is the kind of discovery you are after every day for every patient.
In molecular imaging, every patient is an opportunity to make the true discovery that will change their life for the better. It’s an
opportunity you take seriously as you work hard every day to influence the lives of as many individuals as possible.
Our mission is to help you in yours. We partnered with leaders in healthcare like you to understand what you need from your
instruments. NM/CT 870 DR is our answer. More than a new imaging product, it’s a system for those dedicated to leading
clinical discovery with hybrid imaging.
A SPECT/CT system for true discovery
- 1 Compared to LEHR collimator, with Step & Shoot scan mode (for SPECT) / without Clarity 2D (for Planar). As demonstrated in phantom testing using a bone scan protocol, Evolution processing (for SPECT), and a model observer. Because model observer results may not always match those from a human reader, the actual time/dose reduction depends on the clinical task, patient size, anatomical location and clinical practice. A radiologist should determine the appropriate scan time/ dose for the particular clinical task.
- 2 Image quality as defined by an Artifact Index in Phantom testing. Data on file.
- 3 As demonstrated in phantom testing using a model observer. For SPECT, compared to using the LEHR Collimator and a SPECT Step & Shoot acquisition. For Planar, compared to using LEHR without Clarity 2D.
- 4 In clinical practice, Evolution options4a (Evolution for Bone, Evolution for Cardiac, Evolution for Bone Planar) and Evolution Toolkit4b are recommended for use following consultation of a Nuclear Medicine physician, physicist and/or application specialist to determine the appropriate dose or scan time reduction to obtain diagnostic image quality for a particular clinical task, depending on the protocol adopted by the clinical site.
- 4a Evolution Options - Evolution claims are supported by simulation of count statistics using default factory protocols and imaging of 99mTc based radiotracers with LEHR collimator on anthropomorphic phantom or realistic NCAT – SIMSET phantom followed by quantitative and qualitative images comparison.
- 4b Evolution Toolkit - Evolution Toolkit claims are supported by simulation of full count statistics using lesion simulation phantom images based on various radiotracers and collimators and by showing that SPECT image quality reconstructed with Evolution Toolkit provide equivalent clinical information but have better signal-to-noise, contrast, and lesion resolution compared to the images reconstructed with FBP / OSEM.
- 5 In clinical practice, the use of ASiR or VISR may reduce CT patient dose depending on the clinical task, patient size, anatomical location and clinical practice. A consultation with a radiologist and a physicist should be made to determine the appropriate dose to obtain diagnostic image quality for the particular clinical task.
- 6 Quantitative accuracy defined as equivalence to well counter-measured injected activity in a test phantom. Equivalence means <11% difference when comparing measured counts in SPECT studies corrected by Q.AC-reconstructed CTAC to measured counts in studies corrected by benchmark reconstructed CTAC. Measured counts are defined as average within identical ROIs positioned on SPECT reconstructed slices of homogenous 99mTc solution phantom study.
